CARE AND MAINTENANCE ADVICE

Air Plant Indoor Care

Tillandsias which are kept in the house need to be watched closely in the initial month until they have established themselves in their new environment. They love fresh air, good light, and humidity - conditions often absent in the home. However, since tillandsias possess the ability to adapt to a wide range of climatic conditions, they often will grow (or at least not decline) indoors if they are given as much of their natural surroundings as possible.

 

Air Plant Light

Tillandsias kept in the house should receive plenty of indirect or diffused light from a nearby window. They should not be left in the direct sun in the summer months (this will cause the plant to become sunburned ).

 

Air Plant Artificial Light

Fluorescent light is best. Plant should be no further than 36" from the fluorescent tubes and can be as close as 6". Light should not exceed 12 hours per day.

 

Air Plant Water

Watering is critical indoors since there is usually a lack of humidity, especially in homes or offices with air conditioning and/or central heating. Regulate spraying according to growing conditions. The amount of watering required will vary according to temperature, light and air movement. As a guide, thoroughly wet your Tillandsia 2-3 times per week; more often in a hot, dry environment; less often in cool, humid conditions. Plants should be given enough light and air circulation and should dry in no longer than 4 hours after watering. Never use tap water where a water softener has been installed. Rain water is ideal.

Generous spray misting is sufficient as a means of watering in average weather conditions. But additional watering will be required in a dry hot environment.

A successful way to water loose plants which are dehydrating, is to totally submerge them in room temperature rain water containing a small amount of fertiliser. They should remain submerged overnight, or at least for a few hours. If submersion is not possible due to them being glued to an arrangement, plants can be held under a running tap, but always shake off excess water, as Tillandsias will not survive in standing water, this will cause the plant to rot.

Under-watering is evident by an exaggerating of the natural concave curve of each leaf.
