Tillandsia, or more commonly known as air plants, are the perfect plant for someone who doesn't have a green thumb. Air plants thrive without soil and feed off of the air, making them one of the most low maintenance plants out there.
The Medusae air plant is native to Central America and Mexico and has fuzzy green leaves with hints of silver that grow upwards in a curly fashion. It is also known as Medusa's head plant because its curly leaves look like the mythological Greek God Medusa, whose hair consisted of slithering snakes.
Bright, indirect light is best. Avoid direct sun and dark shady areas.
There are two ways to water air plants, misting and soaking. A good rule of thumb is to mist the air plants 2-3 times a week in the summer months, allowing the plants to completely dry in between each watering.
How often you water the air plant will differ based on your climate. If your climate is dry, you may have to water it more often. If your climate is humid, you may find yourself watering it even less.
You can also soak the plants in water about once a month for 10 minutes or so. It's important to completely dry the plant before putting it back in its place. You can dry out the plants by hanging it upside down or patting it dry. To avoid root rot, make sure the base of the air plant is completely dried out.
