I see them cropping up on home decorating sites, Pinterest, gift shops and much more. It’s easy to see why they are so popular as they add a fun design element to your indoor space.

I have a special fondness for air plants as they are easy to care for. I confess that I don’t always do well with houseplants (don’t tell anyone else). However, I am able to grow air plants with relative ease, which is why I was excited to review the book, Living With Air Plants.
This book is a one-stop resource for anyone who wants to delve into adding air plants to their own indoor space as it covers all of the information that you need including:
How to Display and Use
Easy Air Plants to Grow
The distinct shapes of air plants create interest wherever they are added such as on a desk or a plant shelf.
My favorite part of the book is all the different ways it shows you to arrange air plants. The authors have very creative ideas for incorporating air plants inside the home in tabletop arrangements, terrariums, hanging art and much more.
Guidelines for the care of air plants is addressed in this book and yes, they really don’t need to be planted in the soil. Plus, they get what they need from being sprayed with water!
There are countless different varieties of air plants and easy to grow species are listed toward the end of the book to help ensure your enjoyment and success with growing these cool plants.

Do you have a plant that DOESN’T bring you joy?
I do. There is one particular that has been bothering me for a while and I finally did something about it as I explain in the video below:
While there may be some sadness when removing a healthy plant, I confess that I didn’t feel that this time. The frustration that I feel each year with its under-performance in my garden that I was ready for it to go.
Although it doesn’t show in this photo, there was a healthy root system on this tiny orange tree.
I sat and watched them plant my new tree. They did a great job!
I will keep you updated as to how it does. It will be hard to wait for two years for new fruit, but it will be worth it!
What plants do you have that no longer bring you joy?
