My Petit Beast

Last week, I received the sweetest, cutest, most black thumb friendly gift from my BFF Kalli (you might remember her from our week long Los Angeles photo safari last year!) – a Jellyfish air plant from the sweetest, cutest most black thumb friendly shop, Petit Beast. When the package arrived, I scrambled for what in the world I might’ve ordered in a late-night, wine induced online shopping spree, but was so pleasantly surprised when I found this note tucked inside:

As instructed, I lassoed that jellyfish and hung the gift in our kitchen window – just a little too high for Maddie and Jack’s reach (much to their dismay!).

Nestled in a pale pink-y purple sea urchin, our air plant (erm, jellyfish!) plays with the sun, reaching out towards the window on sunshine-y days, and I swear, it’s growing. In just the last handful of days in our home, the little limbs seem to be stretching longer, and it makes my heart so happy.

Such a clever little guy.

PS… here’s a fun interview with Cathy, the brains behind the operation at Petit Beast.

    That wee little plant is so adorable! How do you water it?ReplyCancel

    Hi Kara! We used a small hook in the window casing and tied a small washer to the end of the string it’s hanging from. This way, we can just pop it right off the hook, rinse it under water, and even mist it in between!ReplyCancel

    Are air plants safe from freakish black thumb killers like myself? I hope so because these look awesome! I love how you’ve put them into the shell too :)ReplyCancel

  • Kim - May 20, 2013 - 8:14 AM

    Michelle, word on the street is that they’re a LOT harder to kill than a traditional plant. Just a mist of water and submerging it in water every few days, and it should stay looking good! Petit Beast sends along some care instructions to help out the fellow black thumbs though!ReplyCancel
