I have never bought them online, but I have bought them from local festivals. They are cool plants. I think local nurseries may have them also.

Our Festivals start in June here, I will get another one and try to keep this one alive. I've seen on TV some people attach them to a plaque and put moss around them and hang them on a wall.

The technical name for the Air Plant is "Tillandsia" and you can buy them online at Amazon for as little as $0.99 cents.

The one pictured below of course, will cost you more than that, but it would not be too expensive.

The Tillandsia is easy to care for, but does need to be watered on a regular basis, but not over-watered.

I would love to try air plants. There was another discussion on here about them (probably started by me) a little while back... maybe I can dig it up... I had shared a nice photo of air plants in vases that I was hoping to use for inspiration at some point. Right now though, I have my hands full with my outdoor stuff.

I've never tried growing air plants...to be honest, I'm not even sure if I heard of it before reading this thread. Taskeinc, the plant in the picture that you posted looks lovely:)

Found the other thread, but there wasn't any more information that would be useful to you. I would still like to try air plants at some time though most of the people who responded to my thread seemed to not have had much success with them. This is the photo that originally inspired me to want to get some of my own:

Check out air plants on Pinterest. They do need some misting and some indirect sunlight I think... I think some grow in the shade too though. I gotta check out Amazon. I've found a few websites online and they weren't too cheap.

The nursery on Tchoupitoulas near Jackson has them; I don't remember what the prices were like, but I don't remember thinking they were particularly expensive. I have and English Ivy and an orchid indoors right now that I'm tending to. If they survive I'll think about other "delicates."

I bet nobody else but me and you can pronounce Tchoupitoulas! Haha Nice meeting another local gardener here.
