LIGHT: Bright, indirect sunlight.
WATER: Rain water is best. Tap water is usually fine for air plants. Do not use distilled water or softened water. If you are using tap water, set a bowl of water on the counter for a few hours prior to using it for your plants. This way, the chlorine can evaporate before you add the air plants. Submerge your air plants in the water, and leave them soaking for 10-20 mins. After their bath, gently shake the excess water from the plants and set them out in good air circulation to air dry upside down, to let all the trapped water run out and dry. Check the plants after four hours. If they are fully dry, return them to their display. It is important not to let the plants remain wet, or they will rot.
*Air plants in bloom should be rinsed under running water instead of submerged, with care taken for the delicate flower. Increase misting for the air plants while in bloom.
FERTILIZER: Fertilizing airplant is not strictly necessary, but it does lead to better health, better growing and better blooming. Well fed air plants also are better able to adapt to challenging conditions, like a 2 week vacation without watering, a heat wave, etc. Use a fertilizer specifically formulated for bromeliads/orchids or air plants once a month.
