Reviews

"In every gardener's life, the road divides, providing a chance to let go of old snobberies and discover new delights. My heart leapt when I saw Air Plants. . . . I gazed with no small lust in the heart at air plants perching in napkin rings, teacups or bull's horns, as styled by the book's artistic author." --The New York Times Book Review "Sengo offers fresh possibilities to people who love plants in their home but have little time, limited space, and a general disinclination toward plant care. . . . Sengo's informative book offers creative ways to enjoy these quirky plants." --Publishers Weekly "A timely book for the genus tillandsia, which seems to be popping up everywhere as of late, as the 'in' group of plants." --Country Gardens "This book, written by Flora Grubb Gardens' own Zenaida Sengo and photographed by the insanely talented Caitlin Atkinson, takes a deep dive into different varieties, care, and projects." --Sunset "A great introduction. . . . Immerse yourself in the wonders of these deceptively simple showstoppers." --Chicago Tribune "Sengo dishes on the plant. . . . sharing ideas for decorating with the low-maintenance, sculptural wonders. Sengo and photographer Caitlin Atkinson use their homes and the homes of friends to demonstrate how to turn the plants into the perfect accessory for any bright space." --San Francisco Chronicle "Zenaida Sengo may inspire you to add a little exotic flavor to your environs with these unusual plants." --American Gardener "This book covers all the basics of growing and crafting with the fuzzy, spiky, sculptural plants that are--bonus!--low-maintenance and soil free." --Denver Life Magazine "Step-by-step instructions along with color photographs will help you design a hard-to-kill arrangement, for yourself or gift giving." --The Oregonian "A truly handy and fun read, with clear, pretty photos and step-by-step how-to projects, this book is not only a guide on choosing and caring for air plants, but also gives us amazingly creative ideas on air plant crafting and design." --BoingBoing "A plant lover's dream." --The Nest
