SUBMERGE IN WATER FOR 20 MIN WEEKLYWhen you're watering the rest of your non-cactus & succulent crew (unless it's week 2 for them), fill a bowl up with filtered water (I describe the significance of that in this post ) and set a timer for 20 minutes. I call this moment "hot tub celebration" thinking about how they all look chilling in the bowl(s).
SCREEN IN LOCATION WITH AIR CIRCULATIONAir blood circulation is important for the plant to be able to dry off in-between hot tub celebrations and likewise assists avoid disease. Our ladder bookcase takes place to be right near the Air Conditioner vent in the ceiling, which offers regular air flow nowadays. However during the times we have the AC off, opening the nearby window finishes the job as well.
While on the subject of display screens, you can display an air plant in basically every which way.

Do not stress, my Marimo Balls originated from a nursery from a colony that's only ever been grown in captivity, in case you were concerned or questioning. They're not costly to purchase the moment, but I will not be shocked if that modifications over time. Have a great weekend pals!.

During the winter season it is helpful for plants to have cool night temperature levels of 8-10C (46-50F) as a minimum, for a period of rest. Central heating is not typically a problem for these plants over the winter season; just remember they need sufficient water to avoid them from shrivelling.
