Item details

Poor Dilophosaurus. This guy was part of a bag of toys sold off at a yard sale and he had seen better days. Covered in lipstick and sharpie marker, he certainly looked destined for the landfill. But with hours of cleaning, priming, painting, and sealing, he's been reborn as a home for a sweet Tillandsia air plant!

Planter comes with an air plant that is incredibly easy to care for. The air plant, a Tillandsia, doesn't require soil, so it's simply placed in the planter but can be removed and changed out at any time. Tillandsia absorb water through their leaves, so it just needs to be run under the faucet or dunked in a glass of water once a week and put near bright filtered light. Each planter comes with a care sheet for your reference.

Height (including plant): 6"
Width: 3 1/2"
Length: 8 1/2"
