DIY Air Plant Terrarium

My dad gardens more than anyone I know. He is always outside planting new things, repotting, rearranging and watering. Growing up, my yard was basically a jungle. Unfortunately, I did not inherit a green thumb from him. I’m VERY bad with plants, but I finally found a type that I haven’t killed (well not yet, at least)! Air Plants (also known as Tillandsia) don’t require soil to grow, only moderate light and a good soak every week or so—very low-maintenance! They are kinda weird-looking, but these little guys have so much personality! I find them so unique and beautiful!

Once I realized that I could keep these guys alive, I became obsessed with making little terrariums for them. They are super easy, affordable and very versatile. I made some for hanging and some for sitting flat on a table or shelf.

MATERIALS:

1: container – a glass globe or any glass container (mason jars also work great)
2: base material – moss, gravel or glass pebbles
3: plants – it is nice to have a few different sizes to add interest (I got mine here)

DIRECTIONS:

Once you have your materials gathered, just cover the bottom of your container with the base material and add your air plants on top. Told ya it was easy! Feel free to get creative with it, you can really add whatever you like to the terrarium, I added some special shells and rocks that I collected from a few vacations.
