Fuzzy, spiky, and spectacular -- air plants are living, blooming sculptures.

Air plants don't need soil, so you can dangle and perch these easy-care plants almost anywhere. Use tillandsias in craft with shells, rocks, slate, or driftwood to display in your favorite nook. Or try your hand at creating a vertical garden, a terrarium in a flask, or any of the other stylish projects featured in this book.

Despite their well-deserved reputation for being low-maintenance, air plants in the home cannot survive on air alone. Tillandsia expert and artist Zenaida Sengo explains all the basics of growing and maintaining these intriguing plants so that they bloom and thrive year-round.
