Tillandsia Stand 2

steve wallet architect tillandsia holder 2 digital model  9-17-2013And there will probably be more…

Replacement for an old willow bird house (not built by me) that, due to water and weather and age, was falling apart.

The stand I was replacing was about 4′ high, providing a place for the tillandsias above the surrounding plants. Tillandsias like air movement so, like my tillandsia stand 1, this is built out of spaced wood slats. The spaces between the slats provide plenty of openings for the wind, and places to fit tillansias. It’s sort of a fruit crate with legs, built from redwood and cedar.

Tillansia Stand 1

A stand for some tillandsias. Tillandsias are air plants – they don’t need soil and can be set into just about any gap, branch or space. They also like air movement. This stand was made out of wood slats to provide lots of gaps to set them in and to allow the air to move through, and to use up more of my never-ending scrap pile.

It’s very fast and a great tool to communicate with my client (in this case Lisa). Pictures of the model, the construction, placement on the potting shed sink/table and finally with the requisite plants and accessories.
