Low maintenance superstars, air plants are the biggest trend in houseplants this year! A common misconception is that they only need air to live. They actually need a decent amount of light and regular misting to stay happy. They do not need to be planted which makes them perfect for laying in a decorative bowl, hanging from a basket, or even laying nicely in our of our air plant cradles!
