I’ve always wanted an air plant and this is so beautifully mounted in the block, making it so easy to hang. It looks awesome and I often find myself staring at it. My favourite gift to myself in a while.

Watering your Air plants
- Same as above however if windy the plants will dry out quicker so spray twice per week
- If you live in an area with a low humidity (like Gauteng) we recommend that you start misting twice weekly and adjust as necessary , depending on how long it takes for your plant to dry in your space.
