Air plant Terrarium Maintenance Tips

If your airplants are kept indoor, slightly misting (1-2 sprays) them 2-3 times a week will keep them happy.

However, misting is NOT the sole source of moisture. Give your air plants a good soak if they look severely dehydrated. Soak the plants in a bowl of distilled water for 30-60 minutes. Then, gently shake any excess water off as sitting water can cause rot and damage/kill the plant. If your plant looks “thirsty” you can leave them in bowl for a longer period. A healthy air plant has wide open leaves while a dehydrated air plant has closed and curled leaves.


If you are keeping your plants indoors, place them near an adequate light source. However, keep your Air Plants away from excessive direct sun, as this can roast your plants. If you are keeping your plants outside, make sure they are in a shaded area, that does not receive full sun.
