Decoration ideas, gift ideas

Like all epiphytic plants, it lives without soil and the possibilities for decoration are endless.

They can therefore be placed in hanging gardens, fixed to a plant wall, or placed in Japanese gardens or shells, for example.


As the daughters of the air are rootless, they can be placed wherever you want, fixed on fishing nets, frames, vine stocks or even on driftwood to make a plant frame.


The different varieties can be used to decorate the whole house: living rooms but also bathrooms for the varieties that love humidity.


Some use them to decorate terrariums and vivariums because they are not toxic for either humans or animals.


We also have many requests to decorate hotels, restaurants, guest rooms, wellness salons but also receptions, galas and weddings.


You will find exotic pods and seeds from the forest or mobiles to create fairy-tale decorations on créa-land.com.
