Tillandsia (or air plants) are perhaps best known for being low-maintenance plants you can place inside a terrarium as they don't need soil to grow. But if you're tired of seeing miniature xeriscaped scenes inside what look like miniature greenhouses, here are a few ways to think outside the glass box.
3. Sea urchins: The Wispy Duo from peacocktaco, $24 for set of 2. Tiny, delicate sea urchins make beautiful vessels for tillandsia, but you can flow with this idea and try a variety of other shells scavenged from the shore.
4. Artsy wood holder: Rustic Reclaimed Wood Holder from triple7recycled, $25. We love the idea of using string art to suspend an air plant inside a wooden frame. (And while you're at it, here are some more ways to use up a box of nails and a roll of twine.)
5. Salvaged wood: Natural Petrified Wood Piece from Barnwood Blooms, $45. Fallen manzanita branches and gnarled driftwood pieces also make lovely bases for air plants; simply tuck them into the crevices or dab some hot glue on the stems to attach.
