Those sweet summer nights are coming to a close, and school is back in session! Do you have kids who’ve just gone back to school for the year? If so, you might consider getting a little back-to-school gift for their new teacher… for all he or she is about to endure with a class full of kids this year! We think air plants make such great gifts for anyone—green thumb or not! These beauties are so unique and nearly impossible to kill. You can’t go wrong!
Air plants–or tillandsias–can be found in the wild growing from the branches of trees in rain forests, rocky cliffs of mountain ranges and in the dry sand of deserts. In wild environments such as these, some 650 varieties of the bromeliad family evolved to thrive without soil. Those air plants that have roots, only use them to affix themselves to a host with optimal living conditions like a tree or rock.
