 Air Plant

Water a Tillandsia once a week by submerging it in a bowl of water. After 10 minutes or so, remove the plant from the water and place on a towel to dry.

Alocasia

Alocasia like well-lit locations such as an East-facing window, preferring bright, but indirect sunlight.

Be careful not to place your Alocasia in full sun to avoid burning the leaves. Water little but often, taking care not to over-water, but ensure the soil is kept moist.

Aeonium

Aeonium is a succulent and likes bright, indirect sunlight. The compost should be allowed to dry out slightly between waterings, rather than keeping it constantly moist. Spray the leaves with a mister to avoid over-watering.

Begonia

Water from the bottom, using a saucer, once a week and mist every three days over the leaves. If the Begonia is planted in a pot with no drainage holes, simply mist more thoroughly once a week.

Cactus

Mist every two to three weeks, allowing the compost to become dry before watering again – cacti don’t like wet feet.

Calathea

Calathea like indirect, moderate sunlight. Water regularly, taking care to avoid over watering. Mist leaves and soil, or water from below using a saucer or plant tray.

Epiphyllum Anguliger (Fishbone Cactus)

Water from the bottom, using a saucer, once a fortnight and mist every seven days over the leaves. If the Epiphyllum is planted in a pot with no drainage holes, simply mist more thoroughly once a fortnight.

Fern

Ferns like humidity and bright, indirect sunlight. Water from the bottom, using a saucer, once a week and mist every three days over the leaves. If the fern is planted in a pot with no drainage holes, simply mist more thoroughly once a week.

Fittonia

Fittonia like well-drained moist soil, but do not like to be too wet. Water from the bottom, using a saucer, twice a week and mist every three days. If the Fittonia is planted in a pot with no drainage holes, simply mist more thoroughly once a week.

Maranta Leuconeura

Sometimes known as prayer plant. Maranta likes bright, indirect sunlight and high humidity. Water from the bottom, using a saucer, twice a week and mist every three days. If planted in a pot with no drainage holes, mist thoroughly over the soil as well as the leaves. Maranta like moist soil, but take care to not over water. Brown leaf tips indicate that humidity is too low.

Ivy

Ivy likes bright but not direct sunlight. It prefers to be kept slightly on the dry side – allow the top soil to become dry between waterings. Preferably water from the bottom, using a saucer, once a week. If the ivy is planted in a pot with no drainage holes, simply mist with water thoroughly onto the soil and over the leaves.

Mexican Donkey Tails

Donkey Tails (Sedum Morganianum) likes bright shade or partial sun. It will burn in direct sun light. Water from below, using a saucer or plant tray, every 10–14 days. If the Donkey Tails is planted in a pot with no drainage holes, simply mist more thoroughly once a week. The leaves tend to fall at the slightest touch. Simply insert the fallen leaves back into the soil, and they will re-root.

Monstera Deliciosa

Water from the bottom, using a saucer, once a week and mist every three days over the leaves. If the Monstera is planted in a pot with no drainage holes, simply mist more thoroughly once a week.

Monstera Adansonii

Water from the bottom, using a saucer, once a week and mist every three days over the leaves. If the Monstera is planted in a pot with no drainage holes, simply mist more thoroughly once a week. Take care that the Monstera Obliqua is not over exposed to direct sunlight, as the leaves tend to burn.

Oxalis Triangularis

Oxalis leaves close at night – don’t worry, this is normal. Water from the bottom, using a saucer, once a week and mist every three days over the leaves. If the Oxalis is planted in a pot with no drainage holes, simply mist more thoroughly once a week.

Pilea Peperomioides

Water from the bottom, using a saucer, once a week and mist every three days over the leaves. If the Pilea is planted in a pot with no drainage holes, simply mist more thoroughly once a week. If you want to propagate your Pilea, it’s simple. The Pilea loves to poke babies up out of the soil, so when they appear, cut each little plantlet with a sharp knife. You can either keep them in water for a bit or put them straight into soil.

Philodendron

Water from the bottom, using a saucer, once a week and mist every three days over the leaves. If the Philodendron is planted in a pot with no drainage holes, simply mist more thoroughly once a week. You can safely give your Philodendron a light trim any time of year to remove yellowing leaves and trim spindly growth.

Rhipsalis

Water from the bottom, using a saucer, once a fortnight and mist once a week over the leaves. If the Rhipsalis is planted in a pot with no drainage holes, just mist more thoroughly once a fortnight.

Sansevieria

Also known as snake plant. Sansevieria like indirect sunlight, but can tolerate low light conditions. Water every two/three weeks, allowing the soil to dry before watering, and take care to not over water as this may cause the plant to rot.
