Elemental correspondences aren’t necessary for most spell, but they can be extremely helpful to boost the effectiveness of a spell or ritual. Because of that, it is helpful for witches to learn everything they can about the elements and how to call them.

Here are some ways to figure out whether a plant is ruled by Air or not:

Planet correspondences: If the plant is ruled by Mercury, Jupiter, or Uranus, they will usually be Air plants.

How it lives or travels: Tall plants that touch the sky, rootless plants like mosses, and anything that has a seed that travels by air will probably be an Air plant.

Its weight: If the plant is lightweight, it is probably an Air plant.

Fragrance: If the plant smells fresh, clean, or is especially aromatic, it is likely an Air plant.

Gender: This one is a little weird to me, but Air plants tend to have a masculine nature. This is easy to tell if the plant is phallic!

Growth tendencies: If the plant is prolific or grows especially fast, it is probably an Air plant.

Color: Yellow plants are most likely to be Air plants.
