My collection of unusual house plants has grown again! Let me introduce my new air plants.
Air plants are epiphytes. Like orchids they don’t require soil, just water and sunlight.
I started out with just one little red guy who hung out with my succulents. Since moving to the kitchen counter he’s grown a tiny (but observable!) amount. These plants grow very slowly, so that growth qualifies as exciting.
Now that he has some friends I’ve set up a new display. Each air plant (tillandsia) got one spirally cradle. And then I added spirally hooks to a tree branch.
The tree branch was free, and the wires all came from paperclips.
Which made this a very low budget project. Thankfully.
I’m really pleased with the spirally bits. I can’t get decent photos of the whole setup though, because my phone camera can’t focus that precisely.
That little lady has a bloom coming soon!! I’m very excited.
