You just got home from the nursery with a bunch of beautiful Tillandsias. You handpicked the best air plants the nursery had to offer, and you’re stoked to display them in your home.
But where are you going to put them?
You can plant Tillandsia on pieces of driftwood, in hanging metal planters, and even in sea urchin shells! But our favorite place to plant them is in a glass terrarium, so today we thought we’d share our favorite ones with you. You can’t go wrong with any of the terrariums on this list—they’re all gorgeous!
Without further ado, here are the top terrariums for air plants!
Geometric Copper Terrarium
Tillandsia plant looks great in modern, geometric planters like this one! All of the edges of this glass terrarium are outlined in rose gold or copper metal depending on which design you choose. Either one is gorgeous, so you really can’t go wrong!
This terrarium has a big opening, so your air plant is sure to get enough circulation in this terrarium. The size of the terrarium opening also makes it super easy for you to water your plant without removing it from their little home. Just grab a spray bottle, and mist them regularly to keep them nice and hydrated.
This Terrarium planter comes in two sizes—small or medium. Bigger is better, so we say go for the medium size. The terrarium gives you a great excuse to get more air plants if you don’t have enough to fill it!
Light Bulb Terrariums
We think this light bulb terrarium is such a bright idea! It’s not really light bulbs, but it looks just like them and gives the same cool effect.
This terrarium comes with jute strings that you can use to hang them from the ceiling, and they have openings in the middle that allow any plants you put in them to get enough circulation.
They’re a lot more functional than a real, repurposed light bulb would be, so it’s worth spending the money to get them! They come in a pack of three, so you get a good value on this buy. This brand also has another variety that includes a light bulb with two hole- openings— giving your air plants some extra room to grow!

Hanging Glass Terrarium Kit
We love this hanging terrarium! It comes with a beautiful metal stand that has some nice scroll details. The scrolls make this terrarium look extra pretty and whimsical. It would be the perfect vehicle for a little fairy garden full of adorable plants.
This terrarium also comes with two Tillandsia plants and some black and silver rocks, so it has everything you need to get your mini garden started! It’s a great value at $28.00 considering you get air plants and rocks, too.

Tabletop Glass Plant Terrarium
These tabletop terrariums are modern, classic and simple, which is just the way we like our planters! They’ll go with pretty much any decor because they have such a streamlined, minimalist design. They’ll really let your air plants shine, too, because they don’t have many details that will take attention away from them. Take a look!
These terrariums come in a set of two. They all have the same round shape and an opening at the top that lets air in, which is great for air plants. They derive some of their nutrients from the air, so they definitely need the good airflow that these terrariums provide!
Tall Geometric Tabletop Terrarium
The shape of this tall, geometric glass terrarium kind of reminds us of geodes! It has an organic, irregular shape that looks super modern and cool.
It comes in three sizes-small, medium, and large. Definitely go for the large size, though! It’s 9.8 inches tall, which makes it a much more striking and beautiful centerpiece than the smaller sized terrariums. It would look gorgeous in your dining room or living room table with many votive candles around it!
This terrarium for air plants also comes in two different finishes. You can get it with either matte black metal or gold metal if you want a nice shiny finish.
It’s only $29.99 for the large size, which we think is a great deal. It has tons of space for your air plants and will become a real focal point of whatever room you put it in, so it’s worth splurging on!
Teardrop Terrarium Set
We love terrariums that have unique, interesting shapes, like these! In this set, there are two teardrop-shaped and one globe-shaped terrarium for air plants. They’re all a nice size—the teardrop terrariums are 7 by 4 and the globe is 5 by 5, so you’ll be able to fit plenty of air plants in them! They have a nice, big opening that allows plenty of air to get to your Tillandsia plant, too.
They all come with long pieces of twine that you can use to hang them. Two of them have flat bottoms, so you could also set them on your end table or coffee table and they’d look just as nice!
Terrarium Display End Table
We saved the best terrarium for air plants for last! This end table doubles as a terrarium, and it’s just about the coolest thing we’ve ever seen! The terrarium is where the drawer would usually go, and it’s made entirely of glass, so you can see your air plants from pretty much any angle.
The drawer is pretty deep, so you can fit a lot of Tillandsia and rocks in there! Surprisingly, the drawer also has air holes on the sides that will provide air circulation for your plants. We thought for sure that this type of terrarium would be closed, but the genius people who designed this managed to work some air holes into it!
This end table has gold legs and some metal accents, but otherwise, it’s made almost entirely of glass. The almost- fully- glass design gives it an exquisite and delicate look. It would be a beautiful showpiece in almost any room in the house. We could see this table being used as a nightstand in a bedroom, or sitting next to a couch or chair as a side table. Wherever you keep it, it’s sure to be a conversation starter.
