i took a couple pups off a mother plant i got at lowe’s, they grow alright in soil but theyve gone crazy after i tied them to some driftwood and let them attach their roots to that
It is very good at surviving and it dies every 1-3 years, cloning itself in about that amount of time as well and leaving you younger plants. I wish it bloomed more often
It was my first ever plant and has been with me for only a couple days. I have since purchased four more plants and begun propagating my lovely airplant.
Be careful not to let the flower in the middle get brown. my mom forgot to water it and it died, and I can’t get anything new to grow in its place.
Really low maintenance. Such a large, bright plant with such little effort. Mine has begun to grow a new little guy and I’m so excited!
SHE GOT SO BROWN SO QUICK, BUT THIS APP HELPED SO MUCH SO I RECOMMEND RLY TAKING CARE OF THIS PLANT IF YOU WANT ONE
Bright and colourful! Grew like mad when I got it home and put on the window
i love! it sticks with me and is okay if you forget to water!

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.

To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Droophead Tufted Airplant after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
