Where To Buy Air Plants & Accessories

Air plants are living art. Its important to make sure you buy from a reputable supplier that can deliver healthy plants in a reasonable amount of time.

Our highest recommendation is to support your local nursery if they grow air plants. If they dont, I have listed our favorite suppliers, tools, books, and a really cool subscription box below. Click below to jump the section you are interested in.

Air Plants

These are our favorites places to buy air plants online.

Air Plant Shop

The Air Plant Shop has a TON of air plant options. I recommend checking out their Red Abdita or one of their variety packs.

Aura Creations

I bought my first air plants from Aura Creations and still buy from them today. They have really nice displays, a good selection of air plants and they ship in a well designed box.

CTS Air Plants

If you don’t find something you like from the Air Plant Shop or Aura Creations, CTS is another good supplier. I recommend getting their Bulbosa Belize.

Air Plants Care

Here are the tools we use to keep our air plants alive and healthy.

Cute Farms Tillandsia Air Plant Fertilizer

There are lots of fertilizer options but we have had great luck with Cute Farms. Bonus for the easy to use spray bottle.

Oasis Floral Adhesive

This is our workhorse for mounting air plants. Works every time.

Okatsune Garden Scissors

We love these shears. They look beautiful and cut even better.

Terrariums

Terrariums are a great way to display your air plants inside and outside of your house. They also make really good gifts. There are lots of options but I have listed a few of my favorites below.

Black Geometric Terrariums

I think these are made for succulents but they work well for air plants too. Add a little moss and some top dressing for a really earthy look.

Large Geometric Terrarium

This large gold terraium is just gorgeous. Works with modern, rustic, and pretty much any other design aesthetic.

Globe Terrariums

This set of six easy to hang globe terrariums makes it easy to put air plants all around the house.

Terrariums aren’t the only way to display your air plants.  Check out these other really beautiful options.

These are very modern and elegant rose gold geometric planters.

Hanging Ceramic Planter

This is another lovely modern planter set. It has minimal room for rooting, but that makes it perfect for air plants.

Sea Urchin Hanging Planter

These aren’t for everyone but I love mine. Saw something similar in a boutique for twice the price so its also a good value.

Books

I think that I have provided an excellent resource via this website. I learned a lot of what I know from the books below. Check them out and further your air plant knowledge.

Top Dressing

You might be asking why we are recommending top dressing since there isn’t any dirt to hide with air plants. Well, it also makes a good support structure if you want to put multiple air plants in a single vessel. Bonsai Jack is our favorite supplier for top dressing, check out our favorite colors below.
