Know your plant
Air Plants are one of the most unique species of plants. They grow without any growing medium with just air sufficient for them to grow.
They are generally hung using strings or placed in glass containers decorated with pebbles and toys.
Watering: Make sure you water the plant only when required. Do not let the plant to dry.
Sunlight: Make sure the plant gets adequate bright indirect light, but not direct sunlight.
Common Problems and Solutions:
Rot: This happens when the plant is overwatered. The plant rots when it is watered in excess or when the roots are exposed to water for a prolonged time. Make sure the air plant doesn’t soak in water for a long time.
Crispy Leaves: When the plant is exposed to direct sunlight the heat burns the leaves and they turn crispy and brown in colour. Make sure the plant is placed in shade/ indoor where it gets only bright indirect sunlight and not direct sunlight. The other reason is when the air plant is under watered.
HAPPY PLANT PARENTING!!

I am a retired person and indoor plants have been my hobby since 2020 lockdown.
I discovered this shop in Chennai and that they have online sales too.
They have a good collection of Bromeliad. I purchased air plants (Tillandsia and Cotton Candy), Crypthantus Earth Star (Red, Pink, Brown and Tiger) and a hanging crypthantus tiger.
It has been 3 months since I started buying from them. All plants are doing good.
Will keep buying from them.
