Become an Air Plant Expert

Tillandsias, or air plants, are mysterious plant oddities. Deriving nutrients from air and water, they require no soil and have no roots; in the wild they range in size from less than an inch to clusters of plants that are several feet across. In this class, we will discuss different types of Tillandsias and their basic care needs, and we’ll showcase various air plant display ideas, featuring inspiration for gift giving and holiday décor.
