This past year I've developed an interest in tillandsias--these incredible plants, also known as "air plants", that survive and thrive without soil. I've added them to terrariums and small vessels here and there in our little home. They really do make a subtle, but interesting statement and I absolutely love the effect. Plus, you don't have to be an avid gardener or have a "green thumb" per se. All you need is a reliable tutorial :)
You can find air plants at West Elm (in stores), the Palm Room (in Seattle), your local nursery and online too. They typically run between $6 and $8 each. If you've had any personal experience with caring for or decorating with air plants, I'd love to hear about them!
