Watering your Air plants

Indoor Installation:

  • Summer: Spray weekly
  • If temperatures exceed 35 degrees spray twice a week.
  • Winter- Spray every second week.
  • If in doubt rather don’t water .Tillandsias do not like to be too wet.
  •  

    Outdoor Installation:

    • Same as above however if windy the plants will dry out quicker so spray twice per week
    • If you live in an area with a low humidity (like Gauteng) we recommend that you start misting twice weekly and adjust as necessary , depending on how long it takes for your plant to dry in your space.
