How do you attach air plants to a wall?
When using glue, you can use a plant safe glue, such as E6000, which is also waterproof. Make sure to take extra care when gluing to not get glue on any of the leaves, just dab the glue on the base of the plant and let it dry to attach.
How do you wire wrap air plants?
Find a nice flat-bottomed rock. Cut a length of wire that will be able to wrap around the bottom of the rock. Twist together at the top of the rock, and make a spiral to hold the air plant. Give yourself lots of extra wire to work with so you don’t come up short.
How long do you soak air plants?
As a main method of watering your plants, we recommend giving them a thorough rinsing under running water or letting them soak in a bath of water for 20-30 minutes. You can use a bowl, the sink or even the bathtub if you‘ve got a family.
How do you water air plants that are glued?
The best way to water glued air plants is to try to soften the glue and take the plant out. You can also dunk the glued air plant and make sure it’s dry within 3-4 hours. You can try taking out your air plant by soaking the base (not too much) and wiggling it, and hopefully over time, it can separate from glue.
How fast do air plants grow?
The quick answer is, Air Plants are slow to grow, and will only blossom once in their life-span! This can take between a year and two years.
Where do you put air plants?
Air plants do best with at least a few hours of bright, indirect sun daily. Placement within 1 to 3 feet of an east- or west-facing window, or within a foot or two of an artificial light source is ideal. If you keep them well watered, they can have hotter, more direct sun and longer exposure. Avoid dimly lit locations.
Do air plants get bigger?
After the first few years they start to get growing a little faster as they get larger sized. While seed grown plants do grow much slower, they tend to be bigger and better specimens than plants grown as offset. It can take years for a small air plant to grow and eventually bloom, so patience is key!
What does an overwatered air plant look like?
Although air plants like Xerographica don’t need much water to survive, not getting enough would cause dehydration and they will begin to show signs like; looking a bit dull, the tips of the leaves are drying out, and are starting to make a u-shape and get droopy at the same time.
How long can air plants go without water?

Can you just mist air plants?
Misting is a good way to give your plant a little extra moisture if you notice that its leaves are looking a little dry, or if you live in a drier climate with not very much humidity in the air. Misting is simple, just take a spray bottle or a hose attachment on the “mist” setting and lightly mist your plants.
Which air plants should not be soaked?
The T. pruinosa, and T. seleriana both have ample trichomes which is another reason why they shouldn’t be soaked. Soaking might cause them to rot due to too much water.
Do you soak air plants upside down?
It is very important to lay your air plants out on a dish towel on their side or upside down to let them dry completely. This is especially important for the larger species like Xerographica, Streptophylla, and Sparkler. They should be fully dry to the touch within 2 hours after their bath.
