Air plants do not grow in soil and they take their nutrients from the air. They require a different watering technique to normal plants, advice on how to below.

 

These beautiful air plants come in these quirky and super fun face with spectacles pots.

 

  • Pot diameter: 8cm
  • Height (approx): 12cm

  • Light: They do well in bright indirect light so ideally keep on a windowsill.
  • Temperature: Keep in warmer spaces and away from draughts.
  • Watering: Soak the air plant approximately every 7 to 10 days. Water air plants in the morning to ensure they get enough time to fully dry or it may disrupt their ability to respire at night. To water air plants, remove them from wherever you have them displayed and submerge in a bowl or sink full of enough water to completely cover them. Parts of the plants will float up above the water—this is okay, just make sure that the majority of each air plant is submerged in the water. Leave them in the bath for one hour. Remove each plant, hold facing upside down, and shake well to get rid of any excess water that may be pooling at the base of the inner leaves. Then, turn your air plant upside down on a towel and place it in a bright spot. Let it sit for one to three hours, depending on when it is fully dry. Ensure there is no water pooled or else your air plant may rot. Return your air plants to their regular spot until it is time to bathe them again.

 

Note: All our plants are unique, the plant you receive might not be identical to the one photographed but we're sure you're going to love it either way!
