Flipping through Sunset's January issue, I was inspired by the article "Floating on air" with the most gorgeous, exotic looking air plants! They used my two favorite words, undemanding and easy-care, to describe Tillandsias (air plants), native to tropical parts of America where they like to live without soil on trees and rocks. My kind of indoor plant! It will pair up well with the Aloe plant I recently bought from Trader Joes that is growing like a weed and a medicinal plant to boot. Succulent type plants I can handle. The less water you give them the better.
For those dealing with harsh Winters and a few more months to go - I thought the air plant could bring some inspiration to your indoors! Check out the magical air plant garden at Viva Terra, an eco living store or make your own garden with air plants from Airplants4u.
