Tillandsia Terrariums - Air Plant Terrariums
Tillandsia terrariums, or Air Plants are funny, sometimes fuzzy little creatures. They’re the sort of plant that you could pick up and put in your pocket. Literally, as they don’t have root systems that embed into a soil like substrate.
Where do Tillandsia or Air Plants grow in the wild?
In the wild Tillandsia or Air plants grow on trees, sprawling across branches that provide the optimum conditions. These plants are known as epiphytes, as they grow on other plants but they aren’t parasites.
They don’t ‘leech’ anything from the tree they’re living on. In the shop we sell them arranged in Terrariums, or just have them dotted about the place, hanging out enjoying the warmth and humidity.
To water a tillandsia once it’s been placed in a terrarium you would take it out and dunk it into a pot or glass of rain water. Sometimes our London water can hurt the little fuzzy elements on the air plant. So bottled or rain water only for watering unfortunately! They do look great though when in a terrarium:
If you’re looking to run an air plant terrarium workshop get in touch. We can work with you to put together a package for a birthday party, event or corporate party.
