Spray with water 1-2 times weekly in winter, 2-4 times weekly in summer. Allow plant leaves to dry between waterings. If local tap water is chlorinated leave water to stand uncovered for 24hrs before using.


Mostly shade. Indoors near a window - some filtered sunlight is ok. Outdoors in 90% shade - avoid direct sunlight. Air plants like air flow because they get their nutrients from the air.
