Air Plant Mystery Box
Tillandsia Air Plants are epiphytes, meaning that in nature they grow on other plants, usually on tree branches. That means they do not need soil to grow, they get the majority of their nutrients from the air around them. There are hundreds of species and varieties of air plants. This mystery box comes in a single pack, three assorted packs, or five assorted packs in assorted sizes. Plant options include but not limited to what is shown in the pictures. All plant types are a choice of ours.
They should not be in a position to see the sun directly, although early morning or late evening sun is fine. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is best and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.
They will do best in bright light. A nice bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that is right next to a window, either with or without blinds, depending on if the plant can handle sun. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.
Soak them in a bowl of room temperature water for an hour. Shake excess water off afterward and leave them to dry upside down in a bright spot.
They like a high humidity environment, give them a mist regularly. Alternatively, you can put them around a humidifier. It doesn't mean they'll die if they don't get enough humidity, they may get some crunch edges or yellow rims if they don't have enough humidity but will survive.
Increase humidity with increased light to avoid dry out. Make sure they are in an area with good air circulation, do not put them in completely enclosed containers.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.
