String Gardens from the Netherlands ~ hanging sculptures for the garden porch.
The bare roots of selected plants are wrapped in a sphagnum moss and soil mixture, then covered with green sheet moss and wrapped with twine. The root ball is about the size of a grapefruit. Care: submerge root ball in water until air bubbles disappear, allow to drip-dry and then re-hang.
I am so fascinated with these string gardens - pictured here are “air plants.” This genus, Tillandsia (from the Bromeliad family), does not need soil because it obtains nutrients and water through the leaves.
