Airplants are eeeeasy to take care of so if you have a friend who enjoys nature and indoor plants but seems to be incapable of growing them - airplants will be a hit :)
- Airplants are not only easy but also forgiving ...2 - 3 week holiday trip tend to kill all the green beauties but not airplants so think of your busy friends who love to travel but would still like to keep their home plants intact.
- Airplants love beautiful design :) They don’t need soil so it is very easy to place them in wooden pots. Check our interior inspirations page to see how our wooden collection looks in modern urban interior.

Many of you still ask me why airplants don't need much water to survive. It's quiet unusual for most of the plants as we know them.. All the secret is hidden in airplants porous leaves!
Tilandsia's breath the water and the nutritious via the leaves so if you travel and you are unable to water them they will kind of take care of themselves :)
However please don't forget that we don't have a level of humidity that you usually find in the jungle and once you are back from your travels airplants will be more then thankful for 30 min bath and more regular water spraying ( 1-2 per week ). Convince to give them a try ? check how beautiful they can look in your apartment.
How exciting ! We finally have some beautiful cactuses in our store! I am totally in love with the bright colours. It’s like having plenty of long lasting flowers in my room that I don’t have to water too much:)
So what do you need to know to start your cactus adventure few lines on how to take care of cactuses:
Cactuses are easy plants and will definitely survive the periods of drought .. in your apartment :) but if you want them to thrive and grow you would have to water them once per week especially during their growth period between Spring - Fall. Minimal or avoid watering when plant is dormant in winter.
Tip: Cactus plants are best left to almost dry out completely between waterings. Insert a pen into the pot to check if the soil is dry :) Do not overwater or allow plant to stand in water.
Potted cacti do best when they are exposed to sunlight for several hours per day. In general bright light yes, but not all can tolerate intense, direct sunlight, especially in conjunction with high temperatures. If you spot dark patches on the surface your cactus needs some shadow!
During the growing season, a balanced fertilizer, which has been diluted to 1/4 strength, can be added to the water for each watering.
As you can see It’s pretty simple and will beautifully transform your indoor space. Check out our selection:)
Plants watering is a sensitive subject .. main reason why people decide not to invest in plants at all. We tend to forget about it, we don't know how much water is needed etc. On other hand, having an interior filled with plants is so relaxing and beautiful that it would be silly to give up on the idea!
Judith chose to hang the Tillandsia Usneoidus and Tillandsia Caput Medusa in Etairnity Spheres which made a perfect addition to her full of daily light space below the impressive staircase!
