If you live in an apartment and do not have a garden but want to enjoy some plants you are rather limited in what you can grow. One answer is Tillandsias commonly known as Air Plants which are both small and easy to care for. They may be small, but there are some 650 varieties of varying shapes and sizes giving you plenty to choose from. I came across an article by Alan Chan which I found on the Gardening Know How website in which he explains his passion for these plants.
Tillandsias (Air Plants) are super-easy to look after and they make excellent and stunning home d?cor in city apartments, as well as in small and larger-style homes.
There are around 650 unique varieties of air plants coming in different sizes, designs and shapes. With such a large variety to choose from, there is bound to be one that suits you, your personality and your home! Air plants have evolved over time to be able to retrieve all of its water and nutrients through the surface of its leaves. As soil is not required, air plants can adapt, grow and thrive in unique small and tight spaces in your apartment or home. If you are time or space-poor, air plants are the perfect choice of greenery!
Air plants require a good dose of indirect light every day. It is very important to ensure your air plant receives enough light, which will keep them happy and encourage new growth. Suction stands can be used to display your air plants on glass surfaces such as windows or mirrors. By displaying them vertically on your window, you save space while giving your air plants plenty of light. You can also use the suction stands creatively in your bathroom! They stick to the surface of tiles and you can mix and match different air plants and create a visually beautiful work of art, which will sure to impress your guests! These plants look amazing, displayed in beautiful ceramics, glass containers and vases.
