No need for soil

This beauty survives by absorbing nutrients and water through its leaves, rather than through the soil like most other plants.

Tiny but perfectly formed

This small plant only reaches a max height of approximately 12cm, making it tiny but perfectly formed!

Easy to propagate

Easy to propagate - little pups will appear on the mother plant. Leave them attached until they are about half the size of the main plant and then remove them and you will have more beautiful airplants!

Care tips

Light: Loves a spot with bright indirect light. Direct sunshine for long periods of time would likely scorch the leaves.

Water:  Mist frequently. You can dip into water, if it looks like it needs it - maybe once a month- but please ensure you turn upside down after or gently shake, so no water is left between the leaves, which would potentially cause it to rot. Ideally have let the water sit overnight before soaking the airplant in it, or use rainwater. 

Humidity: Mist regularly in place of watering. Would thrive in a humid room, such as a bathroom or kitchen. 

Temperature: Thrive in temperatures of between 18-27°C due to its natural environment.
