If you have never heard of an air plant, then you are missing out on one of nature’s treasures. If you are a lover of plants, but can’t seem to keep them alive then an air plant is exactly what you need. They live and thrive without soil, making them the perfect fuss-free plant for those with dull green thumbs.
While there are many ways to display and grow your air plants, having beautiful terrarium containers is always the best way to go. Because they get all of their nutrients from the air and not soil, this allows you to choose from a much wider selection of containers. You can choose to display one type of plant or add a few different ones in a larger container to create an interesting display. The options really are only limited by your imagination and creativity when it comes to terrarium containers. Along with your air plants, you can create stunning bases to lay your plants on. From sea sand to stones and pebbles or moss, you can customize your terrarium containers in any fashion you wish.
Although they require are minimal attention, there are a few things to remember when starting air plant terrarium containers:
- Air plants need constant air circulation, avoid containers that are very high and narrow which limit the airflow. Dome and closed containers are not an ideal option for air plants.
- Most air plants love warm weather but should be kept out of full direct sunlight.
- Your plants may need the occasional spray of mist and liquid fertilizer, choose a container that allows you to provide this type of upkeep.
The fun part about growing air plants is choosing the container and the goodies that fill it (if any). We at 46 & Spruce have a gorgeous selection of containers that are sure to satisfy every space in your home. Here are some lovely options for your air plants:

We love the look of the short vases filled with stones or moss for display. These lower vases also offer the best air circulation for your plants.
