News: My First Air Plant

I might be a bit behind on this trend, but I got my first air plant a few weeks ago, (thanks mom) and I am super excited about it. It’s the strangest/coolest plant I’ve ever seen…and yes, it doesn’t grow in soil, it just needs air! They actually do need a bit of water every now and then, but they are apparently pretty indestructible and last for years. Which is the perfect indoor plant for me! I am just starting to develop a green thumb for outdoor gardening, but remembering to water indoor plants is a bit of an issue for me. So an occasional soak is perfect!

There are all kinds of air plants, all different sizes, shapes and ways to display them. Somehow they always seem to look modern, is that just me? I think it’s because they are minimal and structural. I have shopped around and have sourced some display ideas and places to find air plants below.

My mom bought it for me from a store in Burlington, Ontario called Centro. Here’s the instructions that came with it:
