Have you ever heard of air plants? The scientific name is Tillandsia, but they’re usually referred to as air plants because of their ability to get most of their nutrients from — you guessed it — the air. Pretty cool huh? They’re super low-maintenance, making them the ideal plant to keep in the office, at home, or even at school. They can help you green up any space with very little up-keep. Here’s how to take care of them.
When you get your plant, you’ll need to soak it overnight. After the soak, let it air dry completely before you give it a new home. For drying it out, use something that elevates the plant slightly and lets air get underneath, like a cooling rack. You can put a baking sheet or something underneath to catch any drips.
During shipping, if the title tips of your plant dry out, don’t worry. This is normal and you can just remove them gently.
