So you’ve jumped on the air plant bandwagon. You’ve got a pile of beautiful looking air plants staring up at you and you’re thinking, “now what?”
Well, today we’re sharing 6 different ideas for displaying air plants in your home.
1. Create A Unique Display
We’ve all seen air plant holders and all the pretty ways they can be displayed, the key now is to make a unique one. These air plants tucked into shells hanging from drift wood create a jellyfish-like effect and make a beautiful display.
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.

Buying air plants is like an addiction – once you start, you can’t stop. Rather than sprinkling them all over your house, designate a wall or giant holder as their permanent home so you can admire all your little beauties in one place.
