The best way to water is to spray it once or twice a week, depending on how dry your conditions are. Like all houseplants, water less in the late fall/winter months.

Soaking Frequency: Every 3 weeks.

Place the kokedama in a bowl, plant side up. Add water at room temperature until the kokedama is about to float. Wait about 5 minutes until the kokedama absorbs most of the water in the bowl. Add more water to the bowl, this time a little bit more, and wait until the kokedama looks wet all the way to the neck. Add more water to the bowl as necessary. This process will take about 15 to 30 minutes. Take the kokedama out of the bowl and let it drip the excess water for about a minute before putting back on display.

Note: We use rainwater. If you use tap water, we recommend letting a bucket of water seat outside for at least 8 hours at daylight while the chlorine evaporates. You can also use bottle water or destile water.


Good, bright natural light is best for the Tillandsia. An East or West exposure is best. Avoid any strong, direct sun as the plant will burn.


The Tillandsia usually doesn’t need much fertilization*. *Maybe once a year if you feel they need it. In nature, this plant gets its moisture & nutrients through the foliage, not the soil. For this reason, it’s best to spray the fertilizer onto the foliage. You can use an all-purpose orchid food diluted to 1/2 strength or use a fertilizer formulated for air plants. You will want to fertilize in the spring &/or summer.
