I posted a while ago about my air plants, and since then I’ve become more and more interested in them and picked up a few more. Recently I’ve been seeing staghorn ferns in loads of decor magazines and blogs, and with a bit of research I found out they’re also epiphytes (air plants that gain support but not nutrition from their hosts). I’m keen to add some to my collection, but my question is this: can I keep the plants in some kind of vessel without having to mount them on a board? Everywhere I look online only mentions either mounting or hanging them (see below). My air plants are just in jars and vases and thrive quite happily like that.
Any tips or tricks for dealing with these plants will be much appreciated.
