Question

How do I grow air plants?

Answer

To grow air plants, follow these steps

1) Provide ample light - Place your air plant near a brightly lit window or under fluorescent lights for around 8-10 hours per day. 2) Water regularly - Soak your air plant in water once a week for two to four hours; then drain it thoroughly. Alternatively, mist the plant daily with distilled or rainwater. 3) Fertilize sparingly - Use a balanced liquid fertilizer every other month during its growing season. 4) Display creatively - Hang them from trees, attach them to objects using moss, or place them on decorative trays filled with pebbles. Remember that each type of air plant may have specific care requirements based on species.
