• Its full name is INTERMEDIA X¬†STREPTOPHYLLA
  • Despite popular opinion, Air Plants do need more than air to survive!
  • It takes air AND water to keep an Air plant happy and healthy.
  • Plants should be watered normally one to three times a week, and given a good, long 2-hour soak every 2-3 weeks. If your house is very, very dry, you may find that you need to water, or even mist them more often.
  • A “normal” watering usually means running water over the entire plant, or letting them soak in a bowl of water for 20-30 minutes. Shake gently after their bath, and then set them to dry off in a place with good circulation for 4-5 hours. Blooming Airplants prefer to be rinsed, rather than bathed.
  • Misting in between waterings can help to keep them happy!
  • Air plants will “fatten up”, and feel stiffer and stronger after they’ve been watered, and will become limp, softer and lighter when in need of a drink.
  • Keep away from cold air or drafts.
