Description

Here our Jellyfish, its hollow and prints great. When you put a Air Plant inside it to give it a complete air jelly look. Looks cool hanging in our living room window. Our cats love to sit and stare at them for hours on end. These fun hanging jellies brighten up any room! Hang them inside or outside.

We use many kinds of Air Plants. This particular plant is called "Tillandsia". They have no stems, they have no roots, and their leaves don't look anything at all like leaves and they require no soil at all, either, and don't live in the ground. They still need some water, we just put some distilled water in a sprayer and give it a good mist, a few times a week and should be good to go, in the right sunlight and conditions.'

You can find other species of air plant to fit your Air Jellies. Shop at some online nursery.

This is really cool! I'd love to have one hang around in my apartment.
Im happy you like the design of the air jellies. This specific species of air plant have harder lower leaves, and are perfect for the airjellies because they dont have roots but you can just simply put the lower leaves inside the jelly and they will stay in with no problem, just make sure when you do your mid week mist on them that you spray about 6 inches away from the bottom being sure to saturate the lower leaves as well as the top leaves in mist. To make sure your Air jellie stay green, fresh, and healthy, no matter what season.
This is amazing looking but I have to ask - how on earth are you keeping the Air Plants in the "jellies"? They look amazing, enough that I want to print a set and pick up plants just to duplicate this amazing look.

What plant do are you using here, also do you have to water it?
I updated the Thing Info.

Just Added a single Airjelly .stl up. Enjoy :)
