The fish store! Why didn't I think of that!

I really like the look of wood, so I think I will do that. I would need one huge ornament for this plant, its huge, for $6 I think it was a great deal.

Thanks again Eeyore for the advice.

Because all the best ideas make you do a mental head slap and say "DUH! Why didn't I think of that?" :lol: :lol: At least they do for me..... :roll: :roll: :?

I am so addicted to Air Plants and their flowers. For Canada the largest supplier I know is Canadian Air Plant Co. :P

I had no idea something called an "air plant" even existed. I am very intrigued, though, and I am going to look for some to pick up. They look absolutely fantastic for decorating!

I'm surprised they are not way more popular than they are - you would think this sort of thing would catch on particularly in high-rise, urban living (I'm north of the city myself).

Here's a link which I think shows some great ideas for keeping and displaying air plants:
