Since air plants do not have roots, they take in what they need to grow through their leaves. A weekly soak in a bowl of water will keep them looking their best. All plants include care cards.

Air plants are S-L-O-W growers. They all bloom once during their life! After they bloom, they produce pups (aka: air plant babies) before the mother plant dies, a process that takes place over the course of a few years.

Most air plants can handle a variety of light conditions, but it’s best to avoid areas that get a lot of bright direct sunlight (ie: don’t hang them in a south-facing window).
Air plants can develop spindly roots, but these are not roots as we know them in the traditional sense – they are just just used by the plant to attach themselves to things in their native environments. You can clip these off if you don’t like the look of them.
