How to care for air plants:
Air plants are described as low maintenance. They have no need for soil, and you can even remove their roots without harming them. But they do have some specific requirements. The key to air plants survival is constant air circulation. They may look pretty in a terrarium surrounded by damp moss, but they certainly won’t thrive in those conditions. More likely, they will rot and die.
Air plants, on average, need to be watered once a week, The best way to do this is to soak them in a bowl of rain or pond water for a couple of hours. This should give them enough time to absorb the water and nutrients they need. After soaking, it is crucial that air plants are given the opportunity to drain and dry thoroughly before being returned to their display. Air plants hate to have moisture lurking in their crevices and around their base.
Now you know how to care for your air plants, it’s time to chose how to display them. They will happily grow standing up, upside down or at whatever angle takes your fancy. They can be glued to wood and rocks or suspended on threads. Please note that copper is toxic to air plants so should be avoided. E-6000, Silicone glue and glue guns are the common adhesives used to attach air plants. If using a glue gun remember to give the glue a few seconds to cool before attaching your plants to ensure you don’t burn them.
