Taking care of plants is like taking care of a little baby. It requires the right mix of everything. If you like plants but too lazy to take care of them, we have the perfect match for you- Air Plants aka Tillandsia. All they need to thrive is AIR!
What are Air Plants?
Plants without soil, sounds fascinating, right? Tillandsia, a genus of around 650 species are known as the air plants. They are epiphyte, meaning that they cling on to tree trunks, rocks, and on other plants than rooting onto the ground. The reason why they are known as air plants is that they get the majority of their nutrients from the air around them. These low maintenance plants originate in warm climates and would be a perfect addition to your collection of indoor plants.

How to Take Care of Air Plants?
- Air plants need sunlight like any other plant, so keep your air plants where they get bright and indirect sunlight. Fluorescent home/office lighting would work as well.
- Although air plants are low maintenance, no plant can survive without water, so mist your air plants every day.
- Make sure you maintain a temperature of 50-90 degrees Fahrenheit around the plant.
- On noticing, remove dried up leaves, and trim the leaf tips if they dry up.
