Living With Air Plants
Here, potted plants line a wall-mounted shelf to form a little garden, transforming a wall into a charming space. The plants displayed are all types that, like air plants, prefer partial shade or the same amount of light as that filtered through a lace curtain, such as orchids and succulents. Potted plants with small flowers that change from day to day add to the enjoyment.

    Display and care

    Watering, care and so on are easiest when types that favor similar conditions in terms of direct sunlight, humidity levels and the like are brought together. Air does not circulate well at the back of deep shelves, so place shallow shelving somewhere with good ventilation. From time to time, place each pot outside in shade.
