These are small plants with long and thin leaves that look like the head of a pineapple. This kind of plant has over 500 species of the Bromeliad family and can found mostly on forests and mountains of tropical regions. You can be creative in making your air plant as decors by placing them on unique containers. A ceramic bowl can be a container of this plant because of its shape. It is important to allow air to circulate on the plant to keep it healthy. Another container that you can use is anything that is made of wood. You can simply place them on pieces of wood and their roots will wrap around the container as they grow. A hand blown glass is also a decorative container for your air plant but keep in mind that these containers must have open spaces to allow air penetrate inside the container.
