The Botanical Gardens here in my area had their traditional Christmas Fair and there were many plants and gifts for sale. The area was filled with holiday shoppers and I fell in love with the display of Air Plants.
I have had several over the years and some lived and some died. I really had no idea how to care for them but the man selling them told me, "They need to be outside". As most of us want them indoors, the plants need the fresh air, heat and sun.
I purchased 4 of the baby air plants. Each should grow into the beauties you see in my photos. My plan is to put them on the large tree in the front of my house. Right now I have 5 Orchids growing on the large limb that falls across my yard and the Orchids are loving the spot.
Normally I wire the plants to the tree or keep them in the house but he said NO! Use liquid nails on the tip of the root area and stick them on the tree branch. Nothing else needed but a spray of water every two weeks if it does not rain.
Ok, I can do that!
My 4 little baby air plants are now in place on the large Oak Tree out front.
My fingers are crossed for their survival.

A bit of Christmas trivia.
Who was the United States’ first ambassador to Mexico and what is his connection with the holiday season?
(Joel Poinsett who was also the developer of the popular Christmas Poinsettia flower.)
