Andreana air plant is a very unique air plant from South America. It sports silvery, thin leaves which sprout from a round base. Its bloom is held high above the foliage. They look fantastic in hanging glass globes. Can also substitute as a nose-tickling device in a pinch.
If this air plant is in full sun, the leaves can turn from green to a beautiful maroon red shade. No soil is needed. Sand, sea glass, rocks, pebbles, and bark chips can be used instead of soil. Frequent misting several times a week is necessary. This plant will also benefit from a soaking bath every week. Give it a little shake off afterwards to make sure water doesn't collect in the bottom leaves to prevent rot.
