Air plants, also known as tillandsias, are having their moment. Known for their spiky shape and extremely low-maintenance needs, they are growing increasingly popular for crafting, design, and décor.
Because they don’t need soil, you can dangle and perch them almost anywhere in your home. Mount them to shells, rocks, slate, or driftwood to display in your favorite nook. Or try your hand at creating hanging gardens to suspend in mid-air.
In Air Plants, tillandsia expert and artist Zenaida Sengo shows how simple and rewarding it is to grow, craft, and design with these modern beauties. The book features six step-by-step projects, including a wood mount and several unique terrariums.
Zenaida Sengo studied art in California, where she got her first start in nursery work at a large wholesale grower. She now works as the interior coordinator at Flora Grubb Gardens in San Francisco and she gives talks on tillandsias.
