DIY Aerium Kit


These small-scale glass aeriums are simple, sleek and elegant. Called aeriums rather than terrariums because they house Tillandsia "air plants," these artistic creations liven up any tabletop, shelf or windowsill. Classic apothecary jars make the perfect homes for these botanical curiosities; to create an Apothecary Aerium is to design a tiny universe entirely unique.

Air plants need no soil to survive, and they absorb moisture through their foliage, which makes care simple; simply remove the air plant from its container, soak in room temperature water, and allow to drip dry.
