5 Simple tricks to keep Air plant alive

  1. Dunking is best. I know you thought you’d be fine just spritzing your tilly every few days, but that isn’t enough. … I recommend watering your air plant by dunking it every week for 8-9 minutes. 
  2. Always air dry. After they soak, Tillandsias need to dry out fully. This means place your plant upside down on a towel or wire rack for it to dry.
  3. Look on the bright side. Air plants love indirect light, which means the plant needs to be in a room where it is sunny.
  4. Plants get hungry, too. … You can add plant fertilizer to help your little plant flourish. Low-nitrogen fertilizers are best for air plants because it helps encourage blooming and offset production in Tillandsia. It’s also very important to use a non-urea-based nitrogen fertilizer. 
  5. Nice and cozy. … Keep your plant in a safe spot where it can thrive in the air, light, and water, which means you can place it in a planter that has great air flow. 

Air plants are usually tiny, easy to grow, and they don’t need soil. As the name implies, air plants absorb nutrients and water from the air through scales on their leaves. They’re the easiest houseplant because they’re easy to care for and don’t need a lot of work to thrive.
