How to care for your Air Plant:

Ensure your moss does not get bunched into a ball, as not having air circulation is a quick killer for this plant

Submerge your  plant in a bowl of water every week or two. Decrease watering to once every three weeks.  Shake the plant gently to remove excess water, then place it upside-down on an absorbent towel until the leaves are thoroughly dry. Avoid direct sunlight while the plant is drying.

Heating and air conditioning can cause the plant to dry faster. Watch for withered or wrinkled leaves; both are signs the plant needs a little more water.

Water air plant in morning or early afternoon so the plant has time to dry. Never water the plant at night. Mist the plant with lukewarm water once or twice every week, or more often if the air in your home is very dry.
