About this course:

Airplants or ‘Tillandsia’ challenge our most basic assumptions about plants, that they needed soil and to be in touch with the earth. A recent development (in evolutionary terms) this incredibly diverse genus features a stunning range of forms adapted to grow in a wide range of habitats. Learn more about these fascinating plants from how they survive, to their natural habitats, and of course how to enjoy them in your home and/or garden. Joshua Rosen, a licensed landscape architect, will share his lifelong passion for Tillandsia (airplants). Joshua founded Airplantman in 2012, a company focused exclusively on custom installations and California-made products designed specifically for Tillandsia. Airplantman installations can be seen throughout Southern California and the world and have been featured in numerous publications.
