Ashley Template- Atlantic Knobbed Whelk Shell with Air Plant
Tillandsias, also known as Air Plants, are extremely easy to care for. They do not require roots to grow, therefore they do not need soil. All nutrients and moisture are absorbed through the foliage. Perfect for both indoor and outdoor settings.
Creating your own Air Plant arrangement is easy. All you need is a vessel and any Air Plant. In this DIY create your own Air Plant arrangement, we will be using the supplies listed under materials needed.
Purple Sea Urchin Sea Shells
Tillandsia Setacea Air Plant
Step 1: Gather your Materials
Gather your sea shell and air plant. You may use any vessel and air plant you would like; we are using the Tillandsia Setacea Air Plant& Purple Sea Urchin Sea Shells. Make sure the vessel you are using is clean and the air plant is properly hydrated before assembly.
Step 2: Creating Your Favor
You will want to gently insert the back of the Setacea Air Plant where it tapers into the opening of the sea shell. Make sure the air plant is secure, but has room for circulating air and can easily be inserted and removed from the vessel. We recommend removing the air plant for the vessel once a week to be watered.
Step 3: Caring for Your Favor
Provide the arrangement with a location that gets filtered sunlight and air circulation. Water on a weekly basis by submerging the Tillandsia in water for up to an hour, then remove. The leaves on the Tillandsia plant will change to a green color to indicate proper hydration. After watering, gently shake off excess water that may have become trapped in the crevasses. Once dry, the Air Plant can be placed back in the sea shell.
Lucky Bamboo (Dracaena Sanderia) thrive in indirect sunlight. Full sun will cause the leaves to turn yellow.
We recommend watering your lucky bamboo arrangement with filtered or bottled water. Water level should cover the top of the rocks. However, lucky bamboo will thrive in vases without rocks as well. For green stalks, we recommend fertilizing your lucky bamboo with liquid fertilizer.
