Placed in a nook, hung on a wall or even suspended in midair, Tillandsias, commonly known as air plants, can be grown virtually anywhere as they do not require soil. This comprehensive guide begins with a primer on choosing and caring for these quirky plants, including tips on propagation, fertilization and pest control techniques, and a watering chart and quick care guide for twelve species.
The author follows with creative display ideas and eight design projects including wood wall-mount décor, a ceramic frame garden, two vertical gardens, a wreath and three terrariums, each complete with step-by-step instructions and a list of required tools and materials. With vivid color photography throughout, the book provides inspiration for anyone interested in growing these plants.
