Plant Care


TILLANDSIAS / AKA. AIR PLANTS
LIGHT 
Natural light is very important! Make sure your plants have access to plenty of sunlight. Direct sun should be avoided but indirect bright or filtered light is ideal! 

WATER 
If kept indoors remove your air plant from its vessel (if attached to an object ignore this step). Soak your plant in a bowl of bottled or filtered water for a few hours. Do this roughly every week or so. Allow it to dry before returning to its "home". A spritz here and there is nice too for a boost. So is the occasional addition of orchid fertilizer to its bath.

WATER 
Your watering schedule will depend on your environmental conditions. Allow the soil to dry between watering. Roots need to breathe! To test soils moisture use a pencil tip. Be careful not to flood the vessel. Avoid getting water on leaves if possible. When water is on the leaves when the sun is pointed on the plant this acts as a magnifying lens and will burn the leaves of the plant. OUCH!

TROPICAL PLANTS

 WATER 
Your watering schedule will depend on your environmental conditions. Do not flood the plant with water or let it sit in a dish of water. Roots need to breathe! Keep moist but not soaked.

The most important thing to remember is to not over-water or ignore your plants! This is the most common plant killer. Make sure you pay attention to your plants. They will reward you graciously! Singing or a simple “hello, how are you today?” greeting is especially appreciated by flora and encouraged by Chaparral Studio.
