Christmas Bulb Tillandsia Terrarium

Nellene from Stylebaggage  created her own Tilland­sia habitat inside of a clear, plastic Christmas ornament. Tillandsia are air plants that absorb water through their leaves, so Nellene instructs to simply leave the container open and drop a little water onto its leaves each week with a straw. These little terrariums could be placed on a tabletop or hung with twine by a window with bright, filtered light.

Tillandsia Terrarium

Nellene was inspired by the Shane Powers Hanging Glass Bubble Collection from West Elm.
