An air plant hanger

Kids Go Gardening - - Front Page -

Some­times it’s just too wet and win­try to go out­doors, but there are lots of plants we can grow in­doors. How about mak­ing one of these cool AIR PLANT hang­ers for your room?

Air plants (also called Til­land­sias) are amaz­ing be­cause they live in air. Most plants drink through their roots, but not air plants. They drink though their leaves! In fact, air plants HATE be­ing planted in the soil. They only use their roots for hold­ing on.

In the wild air plants hang from trees or rocks. In your room, they’ll love hang­ing in a hanger like this one Kacy made from drink­ing straws.
