            Easy Steps To Water And Care For Your Air Plants

Air plants are one of the easiest plants to take care of for newbies and plant mamas alike. For the 2020 holiday season, air plants were our surprise gift in all of your holiday orders. Along the way I received a few questions about taking care of these little beauties. So I thought I'd drop a few of my simple steps here on how to water and take care of air plants.

Gather your air plants and pick a day once a week to clean and hydrate your plants.

bowls with water to clean air plants, Maddi and Joan
Grab a bowl or 2 and fill it a little over half way with clean, lukewarm water.

adding air plants to water, Maddi and Joan
Take your air plant(s) and soak them in your lukewarm water for about 8- 10 minutes.

In the meantime, place a few paper towels over a single cookie tray. This is where your plants will go after they soak. I like to add a cookie rack on top as well however, just the tray with paper towels will do.

setting air plants to dry, Maddi and Joan
Once they've had a good soak, remove your air plant(s) from the water and sit them upside down on the paper towel lined tray/rack. Allowing your plants to sit upside down helps them to drain and dry out any excess water in the air plant. This helps to avoid root rot.

Give your air plants a few hours to dry. Then feel free to bring them back to their home like in this boho style Jute Plant Pod. You're all set. Clean, hydrated air plants.
.
Don't have time for soaking here and there, grab a spray bottle with clean water and give your air plants a quick spray. Some varieties of air plant actually prefer this especially depending on their surrounding climate.
.
Hot tip: give your air plant bright but indirect sunlight. They love it!
.
With so many different varieties and sizes, the options are endless for air plants. A great way to add pops of lush plant life to any space in your home all while being oh so easy to maintain.
