Tillandsia plants, sometimes called air plants, are one of my favorite houseplants purely for their unique growth habit. How many plants do you know of that you can move about the house with such ease? They don’t even need a pot, making them incredibly easy to grow and arrange artfully as often as you desire. Indeed, Zenaida Sengo takes the idea of Tillandsia care as art to a whole new level!
Air Plants: The Curious World of Tillandsias offers a clear and practical primer on the history and needs of the Tillandsia species. Zenaida covers the basics, like what kind of light do they need and how should you water them, then she goes on to teach us about the basic differences between the major types of tillandsias you might encounter on your search for the perfect air plant. With this book in hand, you’ll have all you need to choose the varieties that best fit your needs, environment, and care-giving capacity. Plus, you’ll walk away with a better understanding of how tillandsias fit into the world of plants and with inspiration for how they might fit into yours, too.
Zenaida’s style is conversational and easy to read, making this a delightful weekend adventure into the world of tillandsias. If you’ve never worked with plants, Air Plants will get you started right. If you’re looking for an inspiring and fun place to start or to help a loved one get started, Zenaida’s work is a true gift.
