Air plants make great gifts – they are the modern alternative to a bouquet of flowers!
Air plants are popular with interior designers because they are a great houseplant choice for the home, they make a real statement and are unlike any other plants in the way they look and act. Their unique shapes, colours and textures bring a tropical feel to any space and they can survive without soil and with very little water which makes them fun and fascinating to people old and young.
Fact about Air plants:
– Native to southern parts of the United States, Mexico, Central and South America they can survive in some of the most difficult environments in the world from dry deserts to humid rain forests and harsh mountain regions.
– They are ‘epiphytes’, which means in their natural habitat they live on the surface of other plants and take in water and nutrients from the air through their leaves.
– In some countries they can be found living on telegraph poles, but they are just as happy to live on nothing!
– Contrary to popular belief – they are one of the easiest plant groups to look after.
– Unlike nearly all other plants that photosynthesise during the day, air plants photosynthesise at nighttime – releasing oxygen and moisture, making them ideal plants for the bedroom where they could aid a better nights sleep.
