Low Maintenance Air Plant DIY

In Jacksonville, Spring is right around the corner! There are a few readers (especially our Yankee friends) who would say that Florida doesn’t experience a Winter, but we had a few chilly weeks that made it hard for things to grow.┬áRumor has it we’re due for one more cold snap; so while we wait, we brought the outdoors inside with a super simple air plant DIY. All you need for this project are bud vases, deer moss and a few hearty air plants.
