Product Description

A graceful and elegant planter for air plants (Tillandsias, Bromeliads, aka "tillys"). Gracilis is designed to be displayed on a wall, the wiry back makes it easy to hang from pins or nails.

The Bulbophyllum Series draws inspiration from the exuberant shapes of orchids, while embracing clean lines of mathematical precision. Bulbophyllum (meaning "bulbous leaves") is one of the largest genera in the orchid family, and I've appropriated the genus' name for this art series by creating new computer-generated species, each with an individual scientific name and style. These planters were designed with a custom-made tool that traces a moving path through space using mathematical curves, forming the shapes out of a single, long, interweaving thread.

Taking care of your air plants

Light: Tillandsias may be grown indoors a few feet away from a window, they need bright, filtered light.

Water: Submerge plants overnight using a water bowl, every 2 weeks. More often if it's in a dry environment (AC/heater constantly on). You can submerge just the plant, or the plant and entire planter with it (planter might stain if you do that). Spray misting is insufficient as the sole means of watering but may be beneficial between regular waterings in dry climates to increase the humidity. If you see the edges of the leaves starting to curl or shrink, the plant is probably in need of watering.

Air: Following each watering, Tillandsias should be given enough light and air circulation to dry in 4 hours or less. Do not keep plants constantly wet or moist.

Heat: Optimum temperature range for Tillandsias is 50 - 90 degrees F.
