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 Plagiotropica air plant is native to Guatemala and El Salvador. Its green leaves are a thick and velvety with silver accents. The most notable thing is its crisp white flowers it produces.
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.
