Hinterland Trading Air Plant terrariums have become extremely popular. Their charming personalities, minimal care, and lack of soil make them an ideal way to bring a little piece of nature into your living space and brighten any room. Their uniqueness also makes them a perfect gift that will leave a lasting impression on any lucky recipient. Air Plants (Tillandsia) get their common name from the fact they don't require soil. They are epiphytes, which attach to other plants or trees for support. Their roots are only used to anchor themselves and are normally removed during cultivation for aesthetics. They are not parasitic, instead they gather micro nutrients from the air and water in structures called trichomes on their leaves. As the plant dries the trichomes take on a white powder look. After watering the plant will return to a vibrant green. Air Plants must dry fully between watering because they are susceptible to rot if left wet too long. These Air Plants will only bloom once, but after the bloom they can form up to 12 "Pups", or offspring, at their base. The main plant will slowly be on its way out, but the Pups will continue to thrive and will separate when mature. Air Plants prefer filtered sunlight as their natural home is under tree canopy. This makes them perfect house plants.

Flaming Red Living Desert Gem Cactus - 4" Ceramic Pot
Brand: Hirt's Gardens
Desert Gems cacti -- some of the most colorful cactus around -- are easy-to-grow houseplants that add a bold dash of color to your home decor. Available in jewel-tone shades of topaz pink, emerald green, amethyst purple, fire-opal orange, and blazing yellow, Desert Gems cacti are small indoor plants perfect for decorating desks and tabletops. While they're stunning on their own, we love mixing these colorful cacti houseplants together in fun arrangements. You can also dress up Desert Gems cacti by growing them in colorful containers to match or contrast their vibrant hues. Note: Desert Gems cacti have relatively soft spines, making them a lot less prickly than other cactus varieties. They're fun houseplants for older children to care for and nurture. Grow Desert Gems cacti in a bright spot; they do best when they get enough light for at least part of the day to cast a strong shadow. These indoor plants will tolerate lower-light spots, especially for relatively short periods. Water Desert Gems cacti sparingly. They typically don't need watering more than once every 10 to 14 days -- and possibly even less if they're grown in low light or consistently cool temperatures. Take care not to overwater these colorful cacti -- too much moisture is the easiest way to do them in. Desert Gems don't require fertilizer, but if you wish to fertilize, do so once a year or so with a general-purpose houseplant fertilizer. These cacti also don't require any pruning; they're truly easy to grow!
