How to care for airplants?
- Spray your airplant regularly / soak your airplant.
- Put your airplant in a bright spot, preferably with air circulation as it needs to dry off after watering
- Protect your airplant from frosts at all times
- Protect your airplant from direct sunlight (indirect sunlight is the best)
If you order multiple pieces of Tillandsia mix, we'll select different types for you. If you are looking for something specific, check out the rest of our terraristic plants!
Air Plants are easy to keep in your room or your terrarium. They have lots of different shapes, colors and flowers. They don't need any soil, just put them on a piece of wood or even in a small box on your table.
Originally, airplants are able to live from the humidity in the air, which is why they are called so. It is a very strong type of plant, needing less care than most of the other type of houseplants. Airplants have little fuzzy grey/white hairs on their leaves, which are called trichomes. Via these structures, they are able to get the needed nutrients from the air in a very effective way.
Airplant in an open environment
In warmer months, it is perfect to spray your airplant once/twice a week. This can be done once every two weeks during colder months. Preferably spray your airplant with the Take Airplants care spray, which has the right fertilizers. It can also be done with water (preferably natural water, but hard water is also fine). Important is that airplants need time to dry off completely. In addition to regular spraying, soaking the airplants monthly is very much recommended.
Airplant in open glass
Basically the same care as discussed above, applies to airplants in an open glass. However, it is very much recommended to get the airplant out of the glass once you spray it. Also, the advice is to let the airplant dry off completely before putting it into the glass again. Spraying with the Take Airplants care spray is preferred, whereas it is also possible with water (natural water is better than hard water/water from the tap). To further improve the health of your airplants, the monthly soaking method can also be applied here of which the details are discussed at the bottom of this page. Important is to always let your airplant dry off completely before putting it back into the glass.
Airplant in closed environment/ closed glass
Once/twice a week, give your airplant a spray of water or preferably Take Airplants care spray (once/twice every two weeks during colder days). Put your airplant back into the glass once it has completely dried off. As airplants value air circulation, they could deteriorate more quickly when put in a closed environment, like a closed glass. Therefore, keep a good eye on the appearance of the airplant. Whenever you see that it’s losing color or starts to look a little different/ less healthy, we recommend you to apply the soaking method. This method is discussed in detail at the bottom of this page. The most important thing after soaking, is to let the airplant dry off completely in an open environment with good air circulation and bright light (no direct sunlight). After the soaking method, you’ll find your airplant getting its strong and healthy look again, after which it could be put back into the glass. Whenever you see the same deteriorating process happen again, the process can be repeated.
