+ Water +
Soak your Tillandsia Stricta Stiff Purple twice a week in a bowl of water for 10 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. Tillandsias absorbs water through its leaves instead of roots. 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 them completely within 4 hours of watering. Do not put them under the sun or near heaters/AC units as intense heat and cold temperature can damage the plants.
+ Light +
Tillandsia Stricta Stiff Purple likes bright, indirect light. Display your air plant 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. To keep the dark purple on the air plant, place your air plant next to a bright window with 3-4 hours of direct sunlight. Just make sure to water the plant more frequently when it is placed near a bright window.
