Water: Spray or dunk twice a week, allow to dry within 6-8 hours.  Soak monthly to rehydrate up to 4 hours as necessary.  This plant has very thin leaves which limits its ability to store water so it will need more water than many other air plants

 

This plant can be a little needy as the plant tissue cannot store a lot of water and it requires frequent watering.  It has a magnificently unique bloom with an antler-like structure that makes the extra care worth it.  Very similar in shape to fuchsii and andreanna
