Air Plant Holders For Every Style

Air plants have become a very popular interior decor piece, especially among those who want to add some natural beauty to their space but don’t want the mess of soil that most houseplants require.

If you’ve attempted and failed at growing succulents or struggle to keep common houseplants alive, air plants are a great alternative.

And, if cleaning up soil and remembering to water regularly isn’t your thing, air plants may be your best option.

Air plants do not require roots to survive which is why they can grow without soil. If your air plants begin to grow roots you can trim them to keep them more cosmetically appealing or let them grow for an additional natural look.

These plants survive on the moisture available in the air and do best in bright yet indirect sunlight.

These easy-to-care-for plants are incredibly sustainable and are sure to be a talking point with your guests.

You can add them to your house for an exotic look and for an attractive addition to your home.

Air plants deserve to be showcased in creative ways that add dimension to your room. You can hang them from the ceiling or wall, or use them as a table topper.

To help you display these beauties, we’ve picked out our top 11 creative air plant holders.
