Air plants are a unique addition to any plant collection. Most air plants are epiphytes; in nature they grow on other plants, typically on tree branches, and thus do not require soil as a growing medium. Since their leaves are covered in trichomes, cells capable of rapidly absorbing water that collects on them, they just need to be watered and set out in bright, indirect light. 


Botanical Name: Tillandsia

  • Thrive in bright indirect light. Rotate plant often for even growth. Do not place in direct sun as leaves will burn. Northern windows are great for airplants!
