My latest obsession is the air plant. More formally known as Tillansdia, the air plant is quite a funky specimen. It requires no soil, minimal water, and very little thought- a combo that is more than ideal in my book. The only downside of these plants is trying to find them. Lucky for me a nursery in the area had a few on hand for my most recent project.
The first step in my “Spruce up the mantle” project was ordering these hanging glass terrariums from CB2, the cheaper cousin of Crate & Barrel. They are $6.95 a piece with a flat shipping rate of $4.95.
But of course my favorite part is the air plants. All they require to maintain is a light water misting once a week. Even the most plant care challenged/brown thumb folks can handle these beauties.
I’m certainly digging the display (at least for now) and quite happy with the cost it took to create- somewhere in the ballpark of $60 total. Easy peasy and super affordable. Now it’s on to the next project!
