What is the care of air plants?

Air plants need a lot of ambient humidity, so it is advisable to keep spraying them with water. However, it is important not to drown them to prevent their leaves from rotting. In summer, spraying should be done daily, while in winter, only every three or four days.

Air plants also need light and ventilation, if we place them indoors it is essential that they are in a well-lit place. As for the temperature, they are plants that support very wide ranges, even so if you live in a place with cold winters during this time it will be important to move your air plant indoors.
