Making a New Home & Learning About Air Plants
I am always looking for fun and interesting ways to bring new life into our home. I have been curious about these little Air Plants (Tillandsia) that I have been seeing around and when I found them for sale at our local nursery, I decided to bring one home.
When I showed the girls our new plant they got busy making a new home for the Tillandsia. We chose a basic vase and rocks so that we could easily remove the plant for watering. The girls enjoyed hand selecting the stones that would go in our new Air Plant’s home.
What makes Air Plants unique is that they absorb water through their leaves, which means that they do not need to be planted in soil. In the natural world they usually attach themselves to other plants using their roots as anchors. This allows for a lot of creative ways of displaying the plant.
