There seems to be a growing trend in the gardening world (haha), the increasing popularity of air plants. Whether designing for small interiors, busy lives, or special occasions, tillandsias (air plants) are riding a wave that’s sure to continue for a long while due to their versatility, ease of care, and unique beauty.
The Google search for “air plants” racked up 20, 100,00 (yep, 20.1 million), “tillandsia” netted 1, 100,000, and “ionantha” (a specific type) came in at 227,000. I’m sure other popular types have much larger results, but that is not the purpose of this article. My search on Etsy using “air plants” resulted in 955 items at the time of this writing. (Several are mine as a matter of fact!)
I saw air plants in 2 different Better Homes and Garden magazines yesterday at the dentist’s office and on Hell’s Kitchen last night.
No, this article just points out some resources I’ve found for readers who like to stay up with the latest in home decor, natural design, and going green. I admit, I’m new to this blogging thing, but I will catch on. I found some great sources and if you know of others, post them in a comment. (Well, when I figure out comments, sigh.)
