This pack will include 5 DIFFERENT easy-to-care-for Tillandsia air plants. Tillandsia air plants are low maintenance and high reward. Give them light and an occasional water spray and they will turn beautiful shades of pink, red, yellow, and orange. In no time at all, you will enjoy a beautiful, bright bloom! Better yet, the excitement starts long before blooming time for many of these, as they grow pups throughout their lifespan. Care Instructions will be provided, but take care to tailor your routine to your specific environment.
Sizing: The plants you receive will be between 1.5 and 6 inches in height. Plants may or may not be in blush or bloom. Blush is the plant's response to sun exposure. If your plants arrive green, give them half day exposure for a couple weeks to see color improvement. Please be aware that some varieties may look similar.
Guess What! A portion of the proceeds from the purchase of this item will go to our monthly donations to the Rainforest Alliance TREES program to support sustainable business practices and responsible collection practices.
Introducing Plant In The Air’s Special Air Plant Elixir - part SuperThrive, part fertilizer, all AWESOME!
In the rainforests where air plants naturally grow, nutrients practically fall from the sky in the form of dust from the abundant air circulation, bug, bird, and bat droppings, and of course, rain. When air plants are kept indoors as houseplants, or even outside as ornamentals, it is a different story. The availability and delivery of nutrients is relatively scarce.
Air Plant Elixir to the rescue!
We’ve combined our special Tillandsia fertilizer formula with world-renowned plant vitamin solution SuperThrive. The fertilizer formula delivers nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus, as well as critical minerals in trace amounts. SuperThrive provides a vitamin complex containing Vitamin B1 (thiamine), and host of other vitamins that are part of SuperThrive’s proprietary (and thus secret) formulation. Since being awarded the World’s Fair Gold Medal in 1940, SuperThrive has been used by horticulturalists to revive stressed plants, encourage vigor in ornamental plants, and improve growth and general appearance of plants the world over.
Each bottle of Elixir comes in a blue glass bottle designed to protect the contents from the damaging effects of sunlight. A full bottle of Elixir makes a gallon of ready-to-apply solution. Each bottle has a built-in graduated dropper to make it easy to prepare smaller amounts of ready-to-apply solution. No measuring spoons, analytical scales, or volumetric flasks necessary!
TO USE: Combine one dropper amount of the Elixir with 8 ounces of water. Use as a foliar fertilizer applied directly to the leaves as a spray or mist. Elixir can also be diluted to make a soak. Apply once every two weeks for maintenance. Store remaining solution in a cool, dry place.
