Venus Comb Shell 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 airium features a real Venus comb murex shell with very sharp spines, from an Indo-Pacific snail. Out of it emerges a delicate Tillandsia stricta 'green fine leaf'. The shell is 4.5" long and 2.5" at its widest point.
