What are airplants?
Its main feature is that most of them are aerial plants, that is, they usually live without any substrate. This is possible because they have the ability to absorb the necessary water and nutrients through the leaves.
They bloom when they reach maturity, and it's at this moment that they give us their pups, pups or offsets; small shoots and future plants that appear in the middle of the leaves or at the base of the plant and grow and develop all together, creating a growing colony of plants.
How to care for an airplant?
Tillandsias are one of the most resistant and grateful plants that exist. It's care is minimal if we have them in the right place. Like all plants, tillandsias do photosynthesis, that is, they do need light and water.
In general terms, the whiter the plant, the more light it needs, and if it is green, it can survive in an environment with less light. If you have any questions about a particular plant, do not hesitate to consult the data of each plant or send us a message using our contact form
As a general rule, they should be sprayed generously twice or thrice a week (every 2 or 3 days) in spring and summer, and once a week or less (every 10 days) in winter.
It's essential that the plant dries in a moderate time, that's why it has to be quite breezy so that it is not wet for many hours. The best time to water our tillandsia is in the morning, since it has time to dry completely before the night comes. In some species with pseudo-bulb it is important to ensure that there is no water left inside the plant. More details on each description of the species.
Indoors or outdoors?
If they are indoors, we should have them near a window (avoiding direct sunlight) or in a enough illuminated room and will have to be moistened more often, since in indoors the environment is usually drier.
Outside, we will have them in a cool place in summer, protected from the strong midday sun, and protected from the winter cold (less than 5ºC).
The requirements vary depending on the species. Take a look to the individual files, or contact us!
How to care for a succulent?
Light: the more light the better. Most tolerate direct sun, and this is how they live in their habitat; Moreover, we will see that if we do not have them in sufficient light, their growth will be irregular and poor.
Watering: succulents have the ability to store water in their leaves and stems, so they are resistant to lack of water. We will usually water moderately and only when the substrate is dry. In general it is once a week in summer and once every fifteen days in winter.
Substrate: draining, avoid clay substrate.
