Take care when watering blooming plants not to soak the bloom flower, as it could cause the flower to fall off. Here, we carefully dip the sides of this blooming ionantha in water, taking care not to get the delicate purple flower wet.

Air plants kept indoors should not be stored near an air conditioner, heat vent, or radiator, as this can cause the plants to dry out.

This also means that any container that you use to display your plants should be at least partially open to ensure good air circulation and that it won’t trap too much moisture. Tillandsia should not be displayed in enclosed containers, and it’s important to ensure that they are completely dry before they are put back into a container that might restrict air circulation, as trapped moisture in the plant or against it could cause rot.
