Air plants are strange little things. I’ve had a few, but never really got into them until this year. Maybe putting them out for the summer and seeing a lot of growth helped.
I read a book on them called Air Plants: The Curious World of Tillandias. The book showed them in arrangements with succulent, and that fascinated me.
I also like the airy appearance that they give to my winter plant menagerie.
They come in large sizes, which makes them look more like a real plant.
Or small sizes, where they look like mineature desert plants.
They come in lots of colors and add to the variety of the succulents, while mimicking the shape of agave and yucca. And, the blooms are cool!
I’m about at my limit, though, because it isn’t humid here so they need a spritz a couple times a week. I have enough on my plate with work, yard, house, and pet menagerie.
I have killed a few, but have lots more pups. Cautiously optimistic that I won’t burn out caring for these beauties. I even have one serving as the star on mt pencil cactus with kokomo succulent ornaments.
They do create a curious world and I’m a curious girl.
This week, I move my evergreen daylilies into the porch for 3 months. And, then, it begins to turn into spring!
