How much water does my pet air plant need?
Your pet air plant's water needs will vary depending on where you keep it. If your pet air plant is kept indoors (with the air conditioning constantly running), your pet air plant's leaves will dry out more quickly. Your pet will likely need a drink of water about every 3-4 days. You can give your pet air plant a quick spray of collected rainwater or pond water and or dunk it in faucet water that has been sitting out for at least 24 hours (in order to allow the chlorine to evaporate). Your pet air plant will also need a good bath once a month where he/she can soak for 15 minutes or so and get clean and totally re-hydrated.
If your pet air plant is living in your bathroom or in the kitchen, your pet will require less water. Pet air plants especially love bathrooms because of the high humidity levels. They are able to absorb water from the air through the fuzzy hair-like growths on their leaves called trichomes. In this setting, your pet will need a drink of water only about once a week. If you decide to keep your pet in a bathroom or in your kitchen, make sure that there is a window nearby that is providing your pet with the much needed bright indirect light.
