Canoeing the Valley Airium
Air plant airiums
Tillandsia, or air plants as they are popularly called, are native throughout the southern U.S. and down into South America. The most well known species is the gorgeous, romantic Spanish moss. Air plants require no soil, instead absorbing water and nutrients through their leaves. Any roots they may have are used to cling to other plants.
This scenic airium features a group of canoeists paddling peacefully down a rocky valley river. A large Tillandsia tricolor v. melanocreter is featured alongside two Tillandsia aeranthos 'purple' and a Tillandsia scaposa. The three larger rocks were found in New Hampshire. Glass bowl is about 3" tall with a 7.5" diameter; plants add about another 3" in height.
