I need help with this one, are people just resting this on potting soul? I’ve never had one before Thanks soooo much
2” pot without drainage
Last watered 1 day ago
@QuirkyLimabean you can put an air plant anywhere! In nature they use their little roots to grow on the sides of trees usually :)
@alex but mine doesn’t have roots. It actually keeps losing the outter leaves. I don’t want to kill it. I may have had it too moist bc I soaked the end of it in water initially trying to grow a root
Hi! From my understanding and experience with air plants they need a lot of indirect sunlight and to be watered 1 x week.
I would be careful resting it in moist soil because it could rot. It looks like you have a layer of moss on top of the soil so it might okay there, just keep a close eye on it.

I keep mine sitting inside an empty clay pot and just mist it frequently so it doesn't get too wet and rot.
Oh that’s perfect! I have ways to place it elsewhere but almost thought it had lost its roots and I was trying to encourage them back
@poisonivy213 agree and that’s how I care for mine πŸͺ΄πŸ˜
