An Elephant & An Air Plant

An Elephant & An Air Plant

Do you all know about air plants?

They don’t need soil or to be planted, you just set them in a container!

Yep, that’s it!

But they do need an occasional misting of water to keep them hydrated.

I love that air plants can fit just about anywhere and you can use unique planters.

Easy project.

Done in a minute.


PS. update – I’m having trouble with comments disappearing or going to spam … if you can, would you mind leaving one so I can see what’s wrong? THANK YOU!

  1. Melissa,

    Congrats on your award, it is well deserved.

    All the best of wishes,

  2. I found you through the BHG event. Congratulations. I had forgotten all about air plants. Time to pick up a few

  3. Love those little tuck in plants, and your elephant planter.

  4. When I bought mine I was told to let the roots soak in a bowl of water once a week and then let dry thoroughly. I manage to do it about once a month and it’s worked fine!

  5. Totally ordering!
    Thanks, Melissa!

  6. I’ve been having trouble with that too — specifically with a [Rafflecopter] giveaway post on my blog. And on the opposite side of the spectrum, I leave comments on blogs, and I get an email saying that it was a “fail.” Seems I can’t win. Hope you have better luck figuring out your problem!

  7. I love your elephant and I love airplants! I have two that sit on the edge of my tub!
