Native to Colombia, the Andreana is a dome-shaped, urchin-like plant with fine, pointed needles. Its leaves grow outward from a spherical bulb at its base.
Air Plants are epiphytic plants that absorb moisture and nutrients from the air, water, and debris surrounding them. They don’t require soil but you do need to water them! We recommend misting them once or twice a week or fully submerging them in lukewarm water for 15 minutes once a week.
Plant Care Level: Easy
It is epiphytic, which means that they prefer to grow on the surface of other plants and rocky surfaces, rather than in soil.
