    The smooth green leaves of this great little air plant somettimes have a reddish flush, which becomes really quite pronounced when the plant is about the flower. Its primarily grown for this colourful foliage as the flowers are very small - but it is also incredibly easy and undemanding, which makes it perfect for the novice gardener. The plant is supplied as a single shoot approximately 5cm in length. Simply supply your own strong string or fishing line and if you wish you can add a little sand or gravel and its ready to hang.

  • Home care: These plants do need a humid environment to thrive, so a bright bathroom or steamy kitchen would be ideal. Misting with water a couple of times a week usually supplies sufficient water, although additional watering may be required in a dry hot environment. Remember to shake off any excess water though as they dislike overwatering and should never be allowed to sit in water for any length of time. If possible use rain water, especially in hard water areas, and never use water from a water softner.
