These Are the Varieties of Air Plants We Stock

Argentae

The Argentea is home to Cuba and Jamaica. It can be described as a soft silver-leaved plant that enlightens your home with a graceful energy. Its angel-like strands passionately grow as it wishes. Which is the beauty of this Air Plant, you never quite know what it will end up looking like. 

Ionantha

The Ionantha also known as the Sky Plant is the smallest of them all. Although it is smaller than the rest, when in bloom it flowers a vibrant pink purple flower which becomes eye-catching. Dynamite comes in small packages, as they say. It is native to Central America and Mexico. Its elegant arms create almost a perfect circle. However, there is no ‘perfect’ when it comes to the Air Plants as you are never certain which way they may decide to grow, so it creates almost an imperfect circle. 

Melanocrater

The Melanocrater grows strong thin leaves giving the impression of spikes, however, this plant could not hurt a fly. It can create dynamic art amongst the softer Air Plants within your home. It will change the colour of its leaves depending on the amount of sunlight it receives. The brighter the sunlight, the deeper the shades of purple and red will be revealed. Less sunlight, it will stay its original colour of a dark or bright green. The colour of this plant does not determine how you are looking after your plant, I am sure you are a great plant mom. All Air Plants are adaptable and will not wither if they do not get as much light as they intended on getting. However, it is important that they have some light, not necessarily direct but they should be placed in a room that receives light during the day.

Multiflora

The Multiflora could be mistaken for the princess of the Air Plants. Its soft whimsical leaves curl and stretch to wherever it pleases. The leaves have a velvety feel to them. What makes this plant so mysterious is that when exposed to high light exposure, its soft green leaves will turn a bright red colour. It certainly turns your head and makes for a great decoration within your home. 

Medusae


The Caput Medusae looks exactly as it sounds. Other names given, are Octopus Plant and Medusa’s Head. Its mesmerising thick octopus leg like leaves make you question how this plant grows in this way. They come in many different sizes but all bloom the same flaming reddish pink flower from the centre of its heart. It creates an incredible art piece to be placed on a wall within your home. Its velvety feel takes away from the description of looking like Medusa.
