Tillandsia Ionantha Selecta Care Instructions
Tillandsia Ionantha Selecta is very easy to care for. Take your air plants out of the box as soon as your air plant arrives. Follow the easy steps in the air plant care guide included to get started.
+ Water +
Soak your Tillandsia Ionantha Selecta once a week in a bowl of water for 20 minutes each time. You can also mist your plant with a spray bottle 2-3 times a week if it needs more water between the soakings. Tillandsia Ionantha absorbs water through its leaves instead of roots. So flip them upside-down when you give them a bath. Gently shake off any excessive water from the center of the air plant after each watering. Place your air plant somewhere with good air circulation to dry it completely within 4 hours of watering. Do not put it under the sun or near heaters/AC units as intense heat and cold temperature can damage the plant.
+ Light +
Tillandsia Ionantha Selecta likes bright, indirect light. Display your Ionantha somewhere near the window where they can get some indirect light during the day. If you don’t have natural sunlight coming in, office fluorescent lighting would do the job too. Just avoid direct sunlight since the plant can get burnt.
+ Air +
Tillandsia Ionantha Selecta does best in warm environments between 50 – 90 F. It needs good air circulation and some humidity as well.
