The other day when I was watering my air plants (which involves soaking them in a bowl of water for about 30 minutes once a week), I noticed that three of them are having little air plant babies. Now, I assume there is a technical term for this kind of plant propagation, but I’m calling them air plant babies. I am ecstatic. So much so, that I felt the news needed its own post here on IBC.
See the little extra plant shooting off from the main plant? I assume when it’s big enough, I can just break it off and it will survive on its own. So fun, right?
When it comes to plants, it’s always hit or miss with me. I’ve had a few of my indoor plants for years, while other plants have not survived under my care for more than a few months. Thankfully, I have managed to keep my nine air plants alive and, apparently, even enabled some of them to reproduce.
The reason I like these little guys so much is because they are easy to care for and they add a bit of life to my home. I think that every interior space really benefits from a touch of something living. Have you noticed that the home featured in your favorite decor magazine has some sort of plant or botanical in every room? Maybe even two. As I mentioned on Wednesday in my Tips for Styling Centerpieces post, botanicals have a way giving your space life. They can also add interesting color, shape, and texture. If you ever feel a room or area is “missing something,” try adding a plant.
Anywho, elated as I was by the sight of little baby air plants, I decided to share the news with you. I also emailed Scott and Jody at The Air Plant Shop and asked them if they would be interested in hosting a little giveaway on IBC. I’m happy to report they were more than delighted to do so. I bought all of my plants from the The Air Plant Shop and give them my highest recommendation. Plus, they often have awesome sales, and who doesn’t love a good sale?
I was so excited when they offered to give away one Xerographic. This is known as the Queen of Air Plants. While most of the others are smaller in size, the Xerogrpahia is about 4 inches tall and 7 inches wide and will eventually grow three times that size. I actually have one of these and it’s probably my favorite. (Don’t tell the other little guys.) And thanks to the kind folks at The Air Plant Shop, I’m thrilled to be giving one away!
