The gift idea: The Living Lamp - Tillandsias in an atmospheric circle of lights
Tillandsia ionantha - natural tuff made of many plants - hanging in an atmospherically illuminated metal circle.
This is how Tillandsia grow in nature: After flowering, a single plant sets so-called Kindl, which then begin to grow at the base of the mother plants themselves. After a few generations you will get a ball like the one we offer here.
