What You’ll Do
Though most live plants add a touch of vibrant color to the home, they can be finicky to care for. The solution: air plants, also known as tillandsia. These hardy plants are ideal for homes with low light or owners with a tendency to leave plants a little thirsty. With greenery expert Brandi Chalker, you’ll make your own air plant terrarium, a rustic mounted display, and learn to care for the brave little plants.

Founder, Sunshine & Succulents
Walking along the streets near her Outer Sunset home, Brandi Chalker was always struck by the beauty and variety of succulent plants that thrived in the sandy soils and ocean air. In 2008, it dawned on her that those same resilient plants could make handsome decorations for homes, both inside and out. Starting with a single trimming, she taught herself how to assemble succulent terrariums, and before she knew it, her hobby grew into Sunshine & Succulents, which was recently named by SF Weekly as the best place to get plants you won’t kill.
