Hair Plant Care
Even though they are easy to care for, there are a few rules to follow when growing air plants:
Constant air circulation -- as the name indicates -- is paramount to keeping your plant happy. Air plants need some moisture; from late spring to mid-autumn, mist daily. In winter, mist only once or twice a week.
Fertilise monthly in spring and summer using a low-nitrogen liquid fertiliser mixed at only one-quarter strength. In general, fertilise weakly.
Although they love warm weather, most air plants need protection from full sun. If it's a type that grows naturally wild on trees, keep it in moist, partial shade. If it is a ground type, such as T. cyanea or T. lindenii, grow it indoors in bright, filtered light and outdoors in partial or dappled shade.
