Bklink: Houseplants

Call them the perfect plants for parts of Brooklyn apartments that get no light and for people that want a very low maintenance house plant. Their name is Tillandsia "and are known in general as an epiphyte — something that gets all of its moisture and nutrients from the air (and rain, if it lives outdoors)...In reality, how these green, spiky, unusual plants live and flower on a shelf inside our windowless bathroom — without being potted, or in water — is pure magic." They're available at a number of Brooklyn shops.--Brooklyn Based

Or you could just strew spanish moss around the room. It's a great way to reduce noise on hardwood floors without the expense of carpet.

Seriously, "low maintenance" is one thing, but I'm not buying any plants that don't have "impossible to kill" on the label. Too many innocent plants have met their maker in my apartment.
