So are you ready for this week’s giveaway?! Well this one comes to you from yours truly! I’m giving away one of my Handcrafted Air Plant Stands valued at $55.00 (including s/h)!
These are great for plant lovers and dull cubicles that need a little nature! This sturdy plant holder is made from a half coconut shell, hung with macramé jute twine from a hand crafted wooden stand. It’s approximately 10.5″ tall, 4.5″ wide, and 6.5″ long.
Each stand includes:
– One Half Coconut shell strung with jute twine
– One Wooden stand
– One Tillandsia Air Plant (varies depending on availability)
***Please note that each stand will vary due to the nature of this hand crafted item. Also depending on coconut size, shape, color, and plant availability.***
ABOUT THE STAND:
The stand is hand crafted out of poplar, with decorative edges, stained in “Early American,” top coated with outdoor urethane for endurance against moisture, and felt pads attached to the bottom hand made out of Alpaca wool to protect desk tops and tables from scuffs and scrapes. Each is embellished with a hand-made-by-me copper makers mark with my initials, SFK.
ABOUT THE COCONUT & TWINE:
The coconut is a half shell coated in outdoor quality urethane to protect against moisture as well as to enhance the color of the shell. I don’t recommend submerging or filling the coconut with water as this may cause mold growth or mildew to form and potentially rot the plants.
The twine is not treated with any weather resistant materials so I recommend removing the plants from the holder to water them or spritz them with water to prevent the twine from rotting or causing mold growth. If you to choose to spritz the plants in the holder make sure it is a well ventilated area or in indirect sunlight to allow for quick air-drying.
ABOUT THE PLANTS:
Each stand comes with one tillandsia air plant – the specific type will vary depending on availability. They are nestled into the rocks and easily removed in order to water them.
They need a lot of light, but not direct sun. Prolonged direct sun will burn many varieties of air plants. Air plants grow best in temperatures from 50-90F. They cannot tolerate freezing temps.
Water 2-3 times per week. Thoroughly wet the entire plant from top to bottom with a spray bottle or by gently running under the faucet. It is a good idea to give the plants a light misting on the days you do not do a complete watering. This is especially important for tiny plantlets, as they can dry out sooner than larger plants. It is also equally important to make sure that your plants are drying off within 3-4 hours after watering. Prolonged wetness can cause the plants to rot.
