I began collecting Tillandsia at home in 2017/18 and kept wondering how I could showcase them without occupying cabinet top or shelf space. It was very trial and error at first. Size and scale are important when dealing with polymer clay, so the planters needed to have a certain thickness and shape to prevent them from breaking from a fall. The mini planters, one of the first planters I made, are the most durable and would be highly unlikely to break from falling. This makes them perfect for hanging at height or outdoors!
