RobinCharlotte Air Plants

Rad greens to spruce up your pad


You haven’t had the best luck with houseplants. There was that hanging fern that spawned a small ant colony. And those lilies that landed your nibbling cat in the ER.

Don’t be blue. Go green instead with RobinCharlotte, a new collection of no-muss, no-fuss bromeliads.

Designer Robin Humphrey works exclusively with tillandsia, a plant genus that requires no soil, little water, and just the occasional bit of TLC.

A right-brained RISD grad who thinks outside the vase, Humphrey transforms unlikely objects (sea urchin shells, porcelain baby-doll limbs) into pots and crafts paper flag notes (hello, Mother’s Day) upon request.


She also makes gorgeous circular and heart-shaped living wreaths, speckled with seasonal flowers (roses, periwinkle thistles) that she dries in her studio.

Brides-to-be, take note: A section of Humphrey’s e-shop is dedicated to customized party favors.

Hey, girls just wanna have fauna.

Available at Weekend Lovers, 351 South La Brea Avenue, between West Third and West Fourth Streets, Mid-City (323-933-9032 or shopweekendlovers.com); at robincharlotte.com, $10-$130.
