The first air plant I ever owned I got at a small seashell shop in 2009. I thought it was one of God’s coolest creations ever, another plant that needs no dirt. I already loved bamboo, which thrives in water only.
I’ve had the plant for eight years now, and have marveled at its life cycle. It took a while to adapt and mature after I got it, so it was always green. Imagine my surprise when I found little purple flowers! (I did not know they did that! 😊)
I now want to create a love of them in others. This is partly why Annie’s Plants was born, not just to sell arrangements, but to “bring a little life to your world”.Annie
Then came the “pups” … from out of the leaves, little babies formed, one, then another. As they grew I removed them, but more developed.
Now I was hooked. I educated myself and bought different varieties. Some of them are soft and wispy, others with stiff leaves, tall ones, short ones, alien-looking plants – each unique and beautiful.

That’s what they’ve done for me and I hope they do for all who decide to own them. With minimal care, you are rewarded with a unique and beautiful part of our world.
As for my original plant, she’s still bringing me life! Pups #13 & #14 are almost ready to face the world on their own.
