Air plants are both a beautiful and soil free solutions to growing plants indoors. All you need to do to keep these little guys green and healthy is make sure you give them plenty of access to air, place them in indirect light and soak them in a bath of water every 1-3 weeks depending on the weather. Perfect for some of us more forgetful gardeners.


Hopefully some of these indoor gardening ideas will inspire you to breathe a breath of fresh air into your home or working space. Let us know in the comments if you have any indoor gardening hacks, we’d love to find out more ways we could spruce up the VR Gardens office.
