It’s air plant week in celebration of my new Air Plants I bought at Brimfield (objectively the best flea market in New England).
Today, we are talking about what to ‘plant’ the kiddos in. Now, as the name suggests, they don’t need dirt. Instead, they feed off of dust and water. A popular way to display them is in handing glass jars, although the vendor I bought my plants from recommended against that. He said they like to have more air than they can get in the glass container, however based on my reading that seems conservative.
For my plants, I made some macrame holders, and you can to.
For supplies you need: string, wooden beads, a nail to hang it on the wall and help push the sting through the beads
To start, fold the three string in half tie a simple loop knot. Then string the beads onto two of the strings. Tie a knot under the bead to keep it from sliding. Repeat until it looks like so:
Then create another row of beads. Making this pattern.
When that’s done, tie a simple knot at the end holding everything together like a little net.
Then add your air plant and you are good to go.
