Tillandsia Lantern with Lights

Posted on December 25, 2016 in House + Home, All Videos, Decor Inspiration, Indoor & Tropical Plant Care, Making Terrariums

Written by West Coast Gardens

This magical lantern has sparkling lights and ethereal Tillandsia plants, perfect for your outdoor patio in the evening, or indoors as a centrepiece. We’ve used large white stones as a base for our design, but you could use river rocks or other coloured stones for your own, experiment and have fun! The mini-string lights are battery powered, with a timer included, so that they turn on right when you want them to.

Tillandsia need watering once a week or so, in order to keep them happy. It’s best to take them out of the lantern, submerge them in water for five minutes, then let them air dry on their sides for about 20 minutes, before returning them to the lantern.

Enjoy your magical design and try creating lanterns in different sizes!
