Ten of the most popular Air Plants are now available in one set. Whether you are looking for an introduction to Air Plants or you are a collector, this ensemble is sure to impress. We have curated the widest variety of sizes, shapes, and personality possible into this grouping and include and 8 ounce fertilizer to keep them all looking their best. We start with a small Xerographic, which is actually the largest plant in this set. Next in order of descending size are Air Plants: Fasciculate, Juncea, Medusa, Stricta, Valentina, Oxacana, Abdita, Ionantha Ionantha, and Agrentea. Air Plants (Tillandsia) get their common name from the fact they don't require soil. They are epiphytes, which attach to other plants or trees for support. Their roots are only used to anchor themselves and are normally removed during cultivation for aesthetics. They are not parasitic, instead they gather micro nutrients from the air and water in structures called trichomes on their leaves. As the plant dries the trichomes take on a white powder look. After watering the plant will return to a vibrant green. Air Plants must dry fully between watering because they are susceptible to rot if left wet to long. Some of these Air Plants will only bloom once, but after the bloom they can form up to 12 "Pups", or offspring, at their base. The main plant will slowly be on its way out, but the Pups will continue to thrive and will separate when mature. Air Plants prefer filtered sunlight as their natural home is under tree canopy. Upon arrival give your plants a good hour or two soak in a shallow bowl of water. Our plants are shipped on the drier side to avoid rot while in transit. Place the plants root/base side up and out of the water. The base is the area susceptible to rot if left wet to long. You can mist the plants a few times a week or repeat the soaking once a week or a combination of the two.
