Mystical/Modern: Hanging Air Plants

Modern Decor

Are we the only ones completely mystified and amazed by the fascinating life of air plants? Plants…without water…without soil…just living off the air and a couple of mists of moisture every now and then? Pretty awesome if you ask us. But the other cool things about these spindly plants is that their shapes are often very architectural in an organic way, and really lend themselves to a modern look.

In other words, if you’re bad with plants but want some greenery in your life, these cuties could be for you. We came across an Etsy store selling everything you need for some modern air plant action in your own modern space. Though on the smallish side, these hanging pods are sized to fit the petite air plants snuggly, and they’d look quite nice grouped together. We just think these would make a great composition of earthy, natural color and shape for a corner of the house. More on the Mudpuppy Etsy store.

Where would you hang one of these air plants in your house? Are you as bad at growing things as us?!

    Those are great! I have purchased a few air plant kits from Air plant design studio, which has the same modern feel to their products. They have the air plants with sea urchins which is what really spurred my interest in these little guys. So cool I can’t get enough, and I’m using them all over my house!
