    Why are they hung with the plant upside down? Does the type of glue affect the plant?

    How do you keep air plants live. I have air plants, sprayed the top once a week but they still dried up. Do you have to soak it instead of just spraying or do you have to spray the bottom also . Thanks

      As far as I know, you must not soak them. They do not soak in nature.

      You have to imitate their environment. So, it is better to put them under the tap with fresh running water for several minutes, as if it was raining.

      Then, be sure that they dry well.

      It seems that just spraying them does not give them the humidity they need.
