These 12 Decorating Ideas Will Make You Fall in Love with Air Plants

If you’ve never had an air plant, then you are truly missing out on one of nature’s most unique plants. Unlike other plants, air plants don’t need soil to grow. In their natural environment, their roots act as an anchor by clinging on to branches, rocks, or anything else they can find.

For those of you born without a green thumb, don’t worry, air plants are incredibly low maintenance. All they need is a good misting of water every few days, bright light, and air circulation.

Their ability to grow in the air means you can get creative when it comes to decorating. Their tentacle like leaves make for eccentric decorations that liven up any empty space.
