Editorial Reviews

Review

“In every gardener’s life, the road divides, providing a chance to let go of old snobberies and discover new delights. My heart leapt when I saw Air Plants. . . . I gazed with no small lust in the heart at air plants perching in napkin rings, teacups or bull’s horns, as styled by the book’s artistic author.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Sengo offers fresh possibilities to people who love plants in their home but have little time, limited space, and a general disinclination toward plant care. . . . Sengo’s informative book offers creative ways to enjoy these quirky plants.” —Publishers Weekly

“A timely book for the genus tillandsia, which seems to be popping up everywhere as of late, as the ‘in’ group of plants.” —Country Gardens
 
“This book, written by Flora Grubb Gardens’ own Zenaida Sengo and photographed by the insanely talented Caitlin Atkinson, takes a deep dive into different varieties, care, and projects.” —Sunset

“A great introduction. . . . Immerse yourself in the wonders of these deceptively simple showstoppers.” —Chicago Tribune

“Sengo dishes on the plant. . . . sharing ideas for decorating with the low-maintenance, sculptural wonders. Sengo and photographer Caitlin Atkinson use their homes and the homes of friends to demonstrate how to turn the plants into the perfect accessory for any bright space.” —San Francisco Chronicle
 
“Zenaida Sengo may inspire you to add a little exotic flavor to your environs with these unusual plants.” —American Gardener
 
“This book covers all the basics of growing and crafting with the fuzzy, spiky, sculptural plants that are—bonus!—low-maintenance and soil free.” —Denver Life Magazine  

“Step-by-step instructions along with color photographs will help you design a hard-to-kill arrangement, for yourself or gift giving.” —The Oregonian

“A truly handy and fun read, with clear, pretty photos and step-by-step how-to projects, this book is not only a guide on choosing and caring for air plants, but also gives us amazingly creative ideas on air plant crafting and design.” —BoingBoing

“A plant lover’s dream.” —The Nest

From the Back Cover

Fuzzy, spiky, and spectacular—air plants are living, blooming sculptures

Air plants don’t need soil, so you can dangle and perch these easy-care plants almost anywhere. Use tillandsias in crafts with shells, rocks, slate, or driftwood to display in your favorite nook. Or try your hand at creating a vertical garden, a terrarium in a flask, or any of the other stylish projects featured in this book.

Despite their well-deserved reputation for being low-maintenance, air plants in the home cannot survive on air alone. Tillandsia expert and artist Zenaida Sengo explains all the basics of growing and maintaining these intriguing plants so that they bloom and thrive year-round.
