This little air plant, tucked inside of a large snail shell, brings some of the wistful wildness and mystery of the garden indoors. Perfect on a shelf or side table, by it's self or grouped with others, it makes a delightful and whimsical little gift.

The last picture shows several of these gardens, but this listing is for one only!

This super cute little Tillandsia air plant is tucked inside a large snail shell. The plant is not glued or mounted inside, so that you can remove it to water the plant - we used to mount it inside, but found that this kept water inside the base of the plant, inviting mold. Now, you simply remove the plant, water it, and once it's dry, tuck it back into the snail shell. Very easy and better for the plant!

The shell is actually the kind that my grandmother, Parisian by birth, used to serve escargot in! This means it's a bit bigger and sturdier than your average snail shell, but still, please handle with care. About 2 inches tall, and about 2 inches wide. The plants are about two inches long.

Most of our air gardens are made to order. The pictures in the listing are indicative of how the finished product will look, but please be aware, every set will be unique.

Due to restrictions in Hawaii and Alaska, I ship only to the continental United States. So sorry!

Tillandsia are easy to care for, and are hardy, but do require bright but filtered light, as well as moisture. You will get a little care and feeding sheet with your plant!

Domestic shipping is for priority mail and includes insurance.
