There are many ways to hang your air plants in a design. In this Tutorial I explore three
Tie the air plants to the design with fishing line. The fishing line is strong and will stay in place if you soak the entire design in water or you can untie it and soak the plant and place it back in the design
See the Tutorial below for detailed instructions on how to take care of air plants
Simply weave the line through the plant and secure with a knot
The biggest negative of using fishing line to secure the plant is that it does damage the plant.
Glue the entire plant into the design with flower glue. This is especially suitable if there are little to no roots on the plant and if you can soak the entire design.
Because these plants are bulky it is best to place glue on both the plant and the surface you want to glue it to. Make sure it nestles securely into position
I prefer this way. The roots of air plants are there to anchor them and they are tough. Choose plants with developed roots
Weave the roots into the design...
Fan the roots out and weave it through different twigs to secure it in the exact position you require it
Knot to secure. This way you can set the entire design in water to soak, or untie the knot with absolutely no damage to the plant and as the roots grow you can secure it to more twigs
