  1. correct me if I am wrong; but if you put the air plant in the spiral wall holder do you have to take it out of the spiral holder to water. is an air plant the same as anything else it grows as big as the container it is in? I received air plants as a gift for my birthday so it is a learning experience and I want to know more

  2. Thanks for these wonderful ideas. I have a number of different air plants. They have the most interesting flowers. You have given me some marvellous ideas for a gift for a friend.
