Air plant lovers unite! Or, are you looking for air plant gifts? Displaying air plants is part of the fun of growing them and we have you covered here with lots of air plant decor ideas.
While Tillandsia is their botanical first name, they’re commonly called air plants because they don’t grow in soil. Because of this, they’re very versatile when it comes to displaying and decor ideas. They’re perfect for apartment dwellers, design aficionados, beginning gardeners, and busy plant lovers with little time to water.
