Fun With Air Plants

Air Plants… These are probably one of the most versatile, easy to keep living, and unique looking plants that I have ever had. I bought one a year ago and split it to put in Baby V’s nursery. It wasn’t cheap so I didn’t return for more. I stumbled upon at tree that was full of little air plants, and it just so happened to be in my front yard!! So that’s why I had a lot of fun finding places to put all of my little air plant babies.

So here is the tree. I live in south Florida, I have no idea if this is normal!
Can you see them? I know their little but once you know what you’re looking for they’re all over the branches! I was so excited, I started popping them off here and there and filled a shoe box with big ones, little ones, all different shapes, sizes, and variations.
Once I had a bunch of them inside it hit me… what am I going to do with all of these air plants?
The best part about them, no dirt necessary.
I decided to get creative, finding all sorts of places for them to call home.

Around the house…

These were literally things I had lying around…

Cute Bathroom Decor…

We have Tons of seashells around the house.
I’m always looking for a way to use them.

In a kids room…

Something for the Kitchen…

I worked a pin nail down into this cork. The plant easily attached to the nail. 
Here I bent a everyday spoon and added a dab of sticky tack.
Caring for an air plant is simple.
They need a little moisture on the roots from time to time to stay alive.
You can do this one of two ways, first of all you can take the plant itself and soak it in water for about 5 to 10 minutes, every 10 to 15 days.
The second way that you can maintain these plants is to simply spritz them with a water bottle every once in awhile.
Where would you put an Air Plant in your home?

If anything you may be over watering them... I have neglected mine and they are good. I usually just mist them with a squirt bottle from time to time.

So cool! I just saw an article in BHG about Air Plants. I thought they were selling them for some obscene amount. :)
