CARING FOR YOUR TILLANDSIA
● WATERING – 3 ways to keep you air plant hydrated
● SPRAYING – Use a water sprayer to mist every day or two to replicate rainfall and create humidity.
● DUNKING – in the sink/fish tank or a bowl of water. Use this method for a quick refresh or for those with leaves that are hard to mist
● SOAKING – The easiest way to know that your air plant has had a good drink! Submerge for 1-3 hours once a week, or after a period of neglect.
In nature air plants will receive nutrients through water that has absorbed nutrients from bird/insect droppings. To replicate this fertilise use soluble orchid fertiliser diluted in your spray bottle every few months. Tillandsias require good AIR CIRCULATION.
