Air Plant Care: This air plant likes a good amount of bright indirect sunlight, and some early morning or late day direct sun. It likes to be misted or dunked at least 3 times a week, and soaked for an hour once a week. Make sure to shake excess water off of plants or dry upside down before putting back in holders so that water doesn't accumulate in their bases.
