It doesn’t take much effort to make your air plants look great.
But if you’re looking to go above and beyond, there’s no shortage of inspiration sources. Zenaida Sengo, a San Francisco gardener and interior designer, has published a book on just that topic.
In Air Plants: The Curious World of Tillandsias, published in paperback Sept. 30, Sengo and photographer Caitlin Atkinson explore creative ways to make your home look its best using simple design projects. “Known for their spiky shape and extremely low-maintenance needs, they are growing increasingly popular for crafting, design, and décor,” they write.
The book includes six step-by-step projects, “including a wood mount and several unique terrariums.” The book is available on Amazon for $14.25.
Plantstr is about making you feel good about yourself and the place you live. Beautiful, exotic flowering air plants to buy will do that for you. The problem was always that buying plants online was too complicated, and the only other option was to hoof it out of the city to a plant store or a greenhouse, most of which don't even have air plants. Plus — and let’s be honest — it’s not easy to keep a lot of plants alive. Plantstr was our solution.
We founded Plantstr in 2013 with the idea that buying cool house and office plants should be as easy as ordering a book or downloading a movie. We’re a small, family-owned business perfectly situated in beautiful Miami, Florida. Here, an enormous variety of air plants from all over the world are grown year round. We bring that variety to you.
We love all kinds of plants, but we specialize in the exotic, rare air plants that are easy to care for. All of our plants, containers and terrariums can be purchased separately, or as a "Kit" – so you can easily build your own terrarium based on the theme you purchased. Our designer "Kits" include everything you'll need to assemble your terrarium, as well as a picture of what your terrarium should look like.
