What is an air plant?

Air plants, also known as tillandsias, are a type of plant that doesn't need soil because they absorb nutrients from the air and what falls on their leaves. All you need to do is fill a spray bottle with water and mist your plant two to three times a week. That's it!

Air plants come in a wide variety of shapes and colors. Some even bloom flowers! Unlike regular house plants, they're easy to ship and can be purchased online for the best selection.

Air Plant Holders

Air plants grow slowly, so they'll fit in whatever holder you make for them for quite some time. They don't necessarily need to be enclosed in glass, although that will help prevent them from drying out quickly. Tucking in a bit of moss with your display will also keep your plant happy by providing moisture over time.

There are lots of ways you can display air plants, and you can get really creative by making one yourself. Whether you're looking to hang them on your wall or enclose them in a terrarium, you'll find lots of inspiration in this list!
