Monique Capanelli, owner and principal designer at Articulture, chatted with Studio 512 during Natinal Indoor Plant week.

Articulture is a plant and botanical boutique, with original plant art made in-house. They offer succulents, cacti, tropicals, houseplants, living walls, terrariums, furniture and jewelry.

Monique had a couple of tips for anyone wishing to keep an air plant alive (Rosie struggles with this task!):

Tillandsia Care

  • “Once wet, more water doesn’t do a thing. Wet ‘em and leave ‘em.
  • If easy, best method is submerging in water for several hours, once every two weeks
  • If not possible, mist with water bottle (hose if outdoors) about once a week.
  • If you missed a cycle, don’t worry, and don’t try to make up for it.
  • Watering too often can make the center area rot, so don’t overfuss.
  • If the tips of leaves are “pinching up” and you haven’t watered recently, it’s time to water.”

Articulture is offering a Yoga & Ayurveda Workshop on Saturday, September 24th, from 8 a.m. to noon. Monique says, “Join us in the Articulture Gardens for a day dedicated to wellness of the body and mind.
