I have been a little bit in love with air plants lately. These spiky exotic beauties are popping up in flower shops everywhere and seem to live on just about nothing.
They make quite an impression with their interesting shapes and myriad shades of green and given they don’t need soil to grow, you can get really creative with how and where to nestle them. Sounds like the perfect plant for someone like me, who is a little challenged in the green thumb department.
I was walking my dog on the beach the other day and collected a bagful of pebbles and decided to get my air plant DIY on. Check out my adorable terrarium.
I found these plants at my local florist, all priced between 3 and 8 dollars apiece. I picked up the glass vase on clearance at Target, and the little dinosaur was from a pack of dollar store animals that I painted gold with some nail polish. Done! Quick, easy and looks fantastic.
Air plants take their nutrients from the air, need indirect light and need to be immersed in water every 1-2 weeks to keep hydrated. They can last for up to 8 years and flower and reproduce yearly. Cute, cute, cute! This looks awesome in my living room, but I think they would make a great gift in a little dollar store glass vase too.
