Do you have airplants at home? I had one, but recently I have added two more thanks to Etairnity, a Dutch airplant specialist. As part of our Urban Jungle Bloggers project we have teamed up with Etairnity to offer you all a cool giveaway. But before I get into the details, let me tell you a bit about Etairnity and airplants. Airplants – or more correctly Tillandsia – are really cool and funky plants: they are rootless and need not to be planted in soil. All they need to survive is air and some water from time to time. Hence airplants are the perfect low-maintenance plants for anyone who wants greens in the home without the hassle of extensive plant care.
Etairnity was born out of the love for airplants. Since the plants are rootless they seem to not have a real home. Thus the folks at Etairnity decided to design simple and minimalistic airplant ‘homes’. These are made of wood and have a wonderful natural, earthy vibe yet they fit into any kind of interior. I have opted for two wooden discs that can simply be sticked on the wall with a mini magnet – easy and perfect for a rented place like mine! Etairnity not only offers various airplant ‘homes’, they also offer a lovely selection of airplants. So if you feel inspired to add one or two airplants into your home too, you need not look any further!
Airplants are very simple to maintain: Just spray them with water like once a week or let them sit in water for one hour per week. You can also use a liquid fertilizer from time to time that can simply be sprayed on them. Nothing else needed! Put them in a spot with enough natural light and get them a nice home – like the Etairnity pieces. But hey, I mentioned a giveaway, didn’t I? Here are the details!
Join the giveaway to win a set of three Cubes including airplants by commenting under this blogpost and answering the following question: What’s your favorite Etairnity product and why? Leave the comment until September 6th, 2015, to join in. The giveaway is open to all readers. To double your chances you can join the giveaway on my Urban Jungle Bloggers fellow’s blog JOELIX.com too. Good luck!

I love air plants (but that you know 😉 and these stands are beautiful. I love the wooden touch and their minimalist look, perfect with minimalist plants as air plants! The cubes are gorgeous and perfect for the shelves I display my air plants on (I know for sure I will never put them on walls). Let’s keep my fingers crossed to find a new proper home for my three beauties who tend to lie on a shelf, sit on a cup or hang on a fishing wire, waiting for me to find them a better place! xx
I love the CUBE. It’s linear minimalistic structure becomes harshly obscured by the plant inside which creates an ever changing dramatic appearance.
I love the discs the most! Why? With them I can bring green into my “stairarea” by simply putting them up the wall! It’s a dark area where nothing else will survive ;). would be a nice piece of green art!
Wish me luck 😛
Oh, mir gefällt am besten die Tilandsia Ionantha Rubra! Die würde mir in jeder der Pflanzenheime gefallen… Perfekt fur mein Arbeitszimmer in der Farbkombi weiß-holz-pflanze mit winzigen Details in neonpink. ^^
I really love the Hanging Sphere! So beautiful. Hope I can have one 🙂
Thanks a lot for such a nice contest!
Have a nice day!
Thank you for this great giveaway!
Airplants look superinteresting, but sadly my two airplants were killed by my cat. I failed to make him understand that something so attractive WAS NOT actually a cat toy. I had suspended them from a window in thick gauge copper wire, so they had slight movement and shinyness, too. I can’t even really blame him, because they were very pretty and inviting.
Anyway. the product I love the most from Etairnity is the Hanging Sphere. There is something very satisfying and pleasing about the combination of the roundness and the shapes of the airplants.
I admit that I went back to putting plants in my home by starting with some air plants. They’re a bit like tiny little poems for the home.
I really like the hanging-sphere as much as the cubes, but I thought the discs are such a smart idea and thus more original.
Nice discovery, anyway!
Happy give-away to all!
I have seen so many airplants on blogs but never found a place to buy them in the Netherlands before! I like the hanging sphere the most, I like organic shapes combined with plants and this shape really accentuates the beauty of the wood!
oh wow these are so unique, def a talking point, love Hanging Sphere
Oh Tilandsien hatte ich noch nie. Der Cube sieht gut aus, besonders im Kontrast zu den Pflanzen. Ein einzelner an der Wand ist bestimmt ein Hingucker.
Liebe Grüße, Jan
Wauh! They look amazing, almost too cool to be real! Checking the Etairnity website, I?ve no doubt: my preferred one is the Hanging Sphere, perfect styled and with a nordic accent! Yep definitely that one!
Thanks for sharing, is always cool read your blog!
the combination of geometric forms with a wild airplant is a perfect match. wood and the plants are also a nice combination. I have 4 airplants but still thinking about my own creative solution. Oh what a qustion what I love the most of etairnity… the idea, the shop and the Tillandsia Ionantha Rubra is a very special plant with her pink and green colors. Thanks for your nice pictures and ideas!
Hi Igor! I didn’t know airplants but it’s amazing 🙂
I really like the discs, because they are like a frame you can fix a fram on the wall 🙂
Thanks for sharing <3
Just spotted them on Judith’s blog. Their products are fantastic. Love what you did too. They just look crazy haha in a good way!
My favourite is the Sphere one with Tillandsia Ionantha Rubra (what a name).
I love the idea of the discs – making it as simple as possible to have a beautiful plant in the house. The discs would be great for keeping the plants out of reach of my cat. My favorite airplant is the Tillandsia Ionantha Rubra – I love the touch of pink/red!
I love the hanging sphere. It reminds me of a snail. It looks whimsical but still super modern.
I love the hanging spheres! They’d be perfect to fill in vertical space in my office where I can’t make changes to the walls.
i LOVE airplants. i could have a million of them in my home…. 🙂
I love the sphere with the Spanish moss. It’s beautiful. Thinking of buying one! Thanks.
I love Tillandsias. Unfortunately I’ve killed a couple of them by placing them in a glass sphere. Trapped moisture I guess…I really like the wooden spheres since they much perfectly with my interiors and they
seem also more suitable for these plants! Great give away Igor!
I love the Hanging Sphere! I like the combination of the different materials (wood and air-plants) as well as the combination of the structure (minimalist look and wild plants)!
I defintely have to buy my first airplant now, can’t wait until Christmas….
Thanks a lot for sharing your discovery!
I’m just working on my ‘vertical garden’ 😀 collecting any type of succulents, fern and other undemanding plants… these airplants really look amazing! my favorite one is the hanging sphere. I love hanging plants and the combination of modest forms with some organic stuff like wood and plants 😀
thanks for sharing this discovery :3
Wow, a perfect giveaway! I could use a little companion for my other airplant (which is really getting big – I don’t know where to put it!). The hanging sphere is beautiful! Even considering to buy one myself!
I hope to win! 🙂
oh man the discs!!! and I love that you can just buy the airplants on the same site too!
I LOVE the spheres. I also love the cubes, but the spheres are the best.
I love the disks…there is something fascinatingly vulnerable in being able to see the plant in it’s entirety. Kind of like a humane version of the Victorian butterfly specimen pinned to a tray. But alive and thriving. Art that lives and breathes and grows.
Definitely the wooden discs. I think they would fit perfectly in my boyfriend’s office which has a mid-century modern design! Also he has run out of shelf space so I love the idea of making a feature of the air plants all over the walls. Timeless classics!
Thanks for the opportunity! My favorite planter is the disc – living in smallish apartments has made me look for creative ways to fit plants into every space. This does the job!
I adore the Hanging Sphere with ‘Head of Medusa’ (Caput-Medusa). I think it looks like it just wants a hug!
i love the discs! they would fit perfectly in my place as they are simple wood pieces and have a mid century vibe. my whole appartment is full of vintage furniture from market finds to pieces from my grandparents. id love to have these as an accent on my walls and to bring in some simple plants and splashes of green into my appartment.
Great giveaway! I like Tillandsia Ionantha Rubra because of his color 🙂
I also entered this giveaway on JOELIX.com.

I love the hanging spheres with the head of medusa plant in it. They would perfectly fit my kitchen 🙂
I love the hanging spheres with the Tillandsia Juncea plant.
I love all plants, but never had an airplant before. I like all the wooden containers as oak wood is one of my favorites too! Of the plants the Tillandsia Caput-Medusa appeal to me the most.
i love the Tillandsia Bulbosa plant in the Disc wall holder. it’s like a super funky twist on midcentury modern!
I would like Tillandsia Usneoidus (Spanish Moss)be paired up with the Hanging Sphere just like what JOELIX.com did. It looks nice and funky! 🙂
I love the cubes the most as you can stack them with different plants or the same, it all depends on how you want them.
Uhhhh die sind ja so cool!
Wenn ich das Glück hätte zu Gewinnen würde ich mich auch für die discs entscheiden.
würden sich sicher super gut in unserem Schlafzimmer machen.
dann darf da auch endliche in bisschen Grün einziehen 🙂
Viele liebe Grüße
Love Hanging Sphere, it’s almost like an architectural piece, very nice.
Tillandsia Ionantha Rubra is my fave because it’s so pretty with the ruby red.
i like combination of Tillandsia Ionantha Rubra or Tillandsia Caput-Medusa + Cube becuse of minimalistic structure and shapes and color
I love the discs!! I think they are easy to attach on the walls and it will costs not so much space, i live in a small appartment. The nice round shape and the wood gives me a groovy 70’s feeling that will fit perfectly in my retro vintage interior.
The Tillandsia Ionantha Rubra is beautiful! I like to add color to my rooms any way I can.
I really like the Tillandsia Juncea because it looks so pretty and earth in the cube container.
I like the hanging sphere, that’s cute!
I like this airplant a lot, the pink tips are really refreshing
My favourite is the Tillandsia Bulbosa and I like a lot the cube and the disk. In the village where I live, in the Mediterranean costa in Spain, there are many airplants hanging from balconys or windows. People don’t water them, they survive and grow up just from the humidity in the air.
I also do planters, I work with ceramics and I’m going to try to do a planter for an air plant. You can see my work in Instagram: @martungas
I just checked out their website and I really love that Tillandsia Ionantha Rubra, which seems to be part of the giveaway! It has a beautiful red-green gradient effect.
The Cube in Caput-Medusa would be my favourite! It is so minimalist in style and aesthetic, yet able to give our home a whole new look by just adding it into our home.
I love the hanging spheres, they look very cool!
I quite like the cubes in combination with a Tillandsia Ionantha Rubra and a Tillandsia Brachycaulos.
Beautiful plants and great giveaway!
Hi Igor, like you I’ve got all white walls, perfect for showing off my plants, books and art work. My favourite products are the cubes and of course all the plants especially Tillandsia Bulbosa.
I like Tillandsia Ionantha Rubra because it adds a pop of color.
The cube gives the impression of a plant escaping thru the wall and I love the outside comes inside feel of nature which I love and the Tillandsia Ionantha Rubra is so gorgeous when it comes to the colour
Why I discovered airplants just now is beyond me. But I want some. They look really great.
I also like the Discs from Etairnity. They make the Plants look like mounted antlers. Which I think looks really nice!
I love the cube best for its versatility – hang it, stack it, mount it, etc.
We have a lucky winner! Comment number 7 was randomly chosen so congrats to Nannette of Interior Crisp for winning the three cubes with airplants for her home! Please drop me an email with your address!
I absolutely love the colours of Tillandsia Ionantha Rubra – and those wall mounted discs are a fab way of displaying these amazing plants 🙂 .
