Why is my air plant green and not like the picture?
Some air plants not all change color. All our varieties of air plants we grow will bloom over time. However they only bloom and change color once. They do this upon maturity. You can force them but it’s best to let nature take its course for the health of your plant. Around their bloom cycle they will have anywhere from 1-5 babies. Once the plant blooms it will stay alive but will not bloom again. The main reason why we try to send them before they change color and bloom so you will get to enjoy as they are slow growers and the babies may take years to color and bloom.
But as to why we put a picture of them in color and in bloom is the same reason why any store puts a picture on the outside of the box of what the finished table looks like. If they put a picture on the outside of the box of what the table looks like in pieces before you assemble it you would never buy that table. Just like when you go to Lowes or Home Depot and on the tag for each plant it shows you either a picture of what the plant looks like in bloom or a picture of what fruit or vegetable that plant produces. You then take it home and assemble the table or grow and care for that plant so you can enjoy the flower or fruit.
