Surprisingly the tips brown pretty easily if it’s not spritzed with water frequently enough. Some people soak them once a month or so but last time I did that I forgot about it over night and almost killed the poor thing. I’ll stick to spraying it

This plant is super easy to take care of. Just keep them out of sunlight and do not pour water on them, only spray them a little maybe once a month if that. Very easy to maintain. They do not grow very much either so super great for a bedroom.

So easy. So so so easy. Just soak them every now and then! Air plants are fun because you can just set them in random places that a full size plant might not fit or work.

Some of the easiest plants to take care of, just make sure not to overwater them or hold off on watering them for too long.

My favorite of all airplants ! It’s adorable and fuzzy and surprisingly grows fairly quickly. I just place it in a bowl of water weekly and let it dry for about three hours before placing it back on its display.

I bought 5, they were all the same variety, 2 died within 2 weeks. They all were watered on the same day and roughly together in the same location with the same sun. Not sure how 2 died but 3 are good

Extremely easy plant to take care of and also surprisingly rewarding - it's bloomed once and is starting to grow another small air plant to the side.

This plant will basically survive anything! You have to make sure it’s soil is damp at all times, or else the leaves will start to brown and die. It is a fast grower, but you have to make sure to pull the dead leaves off so it can form new ones more easily!

Super easy to take care of. I soak in water for 20 to 25 minutes one day a week and then mist once or twice a week depending on how humid the house is. This is one of my first air plants and has survived my learning curve, so that’s impressive!

Easy peasy plant. Soak in distilled water for a couple hours once a week and that’s it. I enjoy them because they’re so unusual.
