Air plants (Tillandsia) come in many sizes and colors, and they can grow and thrive without soil. They’re perfect for want-to-be gardeners who tend to kill most other plants. If you are looking for a houseplant that doesn’t require much work, these air plants are for you.
Air plants look great in terrariums, driftwood, different shaped glasses/vases, baskets, metal buckets, shells, and just anywhere you want to add a little life. To hang on the wall, tie air plants to a piece of wood, wreath, or whatever you choose, with translucent fishing monofilament and a bit of sphagnum moss to hold moisture.
• Give them bright filtered light for excellent growth and blooms.
• Provide good air circulation.
• Water every other day unless you’ve given them a good soak recently. Use clean filtered drinking water (tap water is too harsh). Give your plants a little rainwater when possible. The moisture on air plants should evaporate within 4 hours; don’t let them sit in water.
Now sit back and enjoy your new unique plant!
