I didn’t use to be a plant person, but when you’re in Vancouver, there is a great love for the green stuff. And if you actually keep up with design trends, you will find the slow rise of a plant (no actually it’s a weed) species called: TILLANDSIA (or Air Plants).
Quoting… ahem… Wikipedia: Tillandsia is a genus of around 540 species in the Bromeliad family (Bromeliaceae), found in the forests, mountains, anddeserts, of Central and South America, and Mexico and the southern United States in North America. The plant gathers moisture from the air (dust, decaying leaves and insect matter). Tillsandsia need no soil because water and nutrients are absorbed through the leaves.
Best part is: IT’S VIRTUALLY INDESTRUCTIBLE. And just requires H2O spritzing once a week. And these cute plants invite space creativity and can absolutely beautify a bare space in a heartbeat.
Because I was so inspired to be grounded to nature by these intriguing plants, I started collecting them 2 months ago. TADA!!
