LIKES //

This variety likes to be misted 1-3 times a week, and a weekly bath - where it is submerged in tap water for at least 15 minutes. Up to an hour once a week in the summer time, and 15 minutes once every other week in the winter time. More often and frequent in the summer months.

Enjoys very bright light, as well as indirect sunlight. Is also extremely drought tolerant.

DISLIKES //

Soaks that last too long, trapped water in between its leaves - so after a soaking or a heavy misting, make sure you turn it upside down and shake the excess water free. You can leave the air plant upside down until it is fully dry before placing it back in its home.
