Air Plants at Field of Flowers!

air plant bubble bowlAir plants have the unique capability to thrive off nutrients in the air. They only need a light spray of water to their leaves every 1 to 3 times a week. Over watering will cause these unique plants rot. Basically, this means your plant needs water, but air plants need to dry out completely before being watered again.
You can mount your plant virtually anywhere, as long as the mount doesn’t hold water. Don’t mount on pressure treated lumber, or anything containing copper. Copper is toxic to Air Plants. Another idea is you can design a little home for all your air plants by using a glass bowl or vase and create a terrarium. For added touches add decorative sand, possibly in different colors to match its surroundings or add stones and river rocks for an earthy rustic look!

Flowering Facts: Tulips

fun facts tulipsThough Tulips tend to be associated with the Dutch culture, they were actually first grown in the Middle East.  The name “Tulip” originates from the Turkish word for “turbin.”  This might have a lot to do with the particular shape of the flower which replicates the look of a turbin.   After being cultivated in the Middle East the tulip made its way to Holland where in the 16th century they were considered precious and sold at an extremely high prices.

Tulips tend to be associated with imagination and love. Red tulips in particular were considered to be a romantic presents during the Victorian era.

Fun Facts: Earth Day

Earth-DayEarth Day is the celebration of our home and home to all the animals and ecosystems throughout. Did you know that in some elementary schools, after Halloween and Christmas, Earth Day is the largest celebrated holiday? It is now observed in 175 countries and is the largest secular modern day holiday in the world. Here are some interesting, fun facts for you to recycle to your friends and get in the “go green” mindset.

• Each year billions of used batteries are thrown away in the United States. This constitutes 88% of the mercury and 54% of the cadmium deposited into our landfills.
• Each gallon of fuel releases 20lbs of Carbon Dioxide into the air.
• Approximately 5 million tons of oil produced in the world each year ends up in the ocean.
• Recycling 1 aluminum can saves enough energy to watch a TV for 3 hours – it’s equal to half a galloon of gasoline.
• Earth Day is a relatively new holiday and was first celebrated on April 22nd in 1970. More than 20 million Americans participated in this first Earth Day celebration.
• Earth Day was founded by the senator of Wisconsin.
• April 22nd is the first official day of spring in the Northern hemisphere and of fall in the Southern hemisphere and was chosen to be Earth Day for this reason.
• Energy we save when we recycle 1 glass bottle is enough to light a traditional light bulb for 4 hours.
• 14 billion pounds of trash is dumped into the ocean every year.
• Never underestimate the importance of recycling: if every newspaper was recycled, we could save about 250,000,000 trees each year.
• More than 20,000,000 Hershey’s Kisses are wrapped each day, using 133 square miles of tinfoil. All that foil is recyclable, but not many people realize it.
• Only 11% of the earth’s surface is used to grow food.
• A highlight of the annual Earth Day ceremony at the United Nations is the ringing of the Peace Bell that was given to the UN by Japan. It is made from coins given by school children to further peace on our planet.

Springtime Blooming Plant Care

Hyacinth iStockTaking good care of your new plants is a very important step to keeping and maintaining your plants’ life. These simple steps will assist you in keeping your house and garden lavishly green throughout the year!

• Keep plants in medium-light locations – out of direct sunlight.
• Natural light is best, but some plants can also thrive in office fluorescent light. Most flowering potted plants should be placed in areas with the most light in order to maintain good flower color and promote the maximum number of flowers to open. Foliage plants will do well under lower light levels and can be placed in areas providing reduced light.
• Plant soil should be kept moist at all times, not drenched but damp to touch.
• Plants should not be allowed to dry out or wilt. Be careful to avoid over watering – do not allow plants to stand in water.
• Avoid wetting plant leaves, this can cause a bacteria and spread to other leaves.
• Avoid excessive heat or cold.
• Plants should be kept in a cool spot (between 65 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit) for best performance. They should be kept away from direct sunlight, heating or cooling vents, directly under ceiling fans, or next to televisions or radiators. (Appliances like televisions give off heat, which causes plants to dehydrate.)

Try these tips out and your plants will appreciate them!

Submerged Branch Centerpiece

Curly Willow Idea CPPlanning a wedding or elegant event? Are you on a tight budget, or simply love the idea of clean, unique centerpieces? While on our never ending search for inspiration, we stumbled across this beautiful concept. We all know that cylinders in different heights are hot, but we were definitely surprised and delighted to see how beautiful these birch branches look when submerged under water and capped off with glowing floating candles. For a little extra touch of gorgeous, acrylic gems have been spilled into the vases to add interest at the base. We love the whimsical touch of the gems being caught in the branches.
