2. Display Them In An “Aerium”

Technically, terrariums require some sort of soil or earth in them, but since air plants don’t need soil to survive, skip the dirt and put them in an aerium instead!

3. Use Them As A Centerpiece

Air plants come in all shapes and sizes, which means they can accommodate any of your needs. If you have a big empty space on your table, a large air plant will effortlessly fill it. Or, if your table is already full but you’d like some greenery on it, place a few tiny air plants wherever there are some gaps.
