Looking to spice up your houseplant collection? Blending art and gardening, these adorable hanging gravity jellyfish aerial plants will brighten up any room
These jellyfish-like air plant designs are vibrant art that can be displayed in your home in place of typical houseplants. For this tutorial, I used this fun and simple kit that you can use to create these versatile organic creations, but you can also gather materials yourself.
Because air plants don’t need to have their roots buried in the ground to grow, they can actually be suspended in the air (hence the name air plants). They have specialized leaves that absorb all the nutrients they need and use only their roots to anchor themselves to rocks and other surfaces.
Aside from their ethereal ability to “suspend”, maintaining air plants is pretty easy—in most cases, you just need to bathe them and keep them hydrated. Plus, these jellyfish plants are so light that they can be displayed in a chic and unique way to breathe new life into your room or anywhere you choose. I love my hanging air plants so much that I started giving this set to all my smart friends.
What are jellyfish plants succulents?
Jellyfish succulents are basically various succulents assembled into a dome shape, then some vine-like plants that grow toward the bottom are added to make the overall look like a jellyfish.
Succulent jellyfish plants are absolutely beautiful and can definitely add pop to any space, such as hanging on a trellis, patio, pergola or balcony. Or, if you don’t have a flagpole or road sign, attach them to a flagpole or road sign!
What you need to know about Jellyfish plants
Anyone who can read ready-made instructions can make a pretty decent succulent jellyfish. All it takes is a visit to the garden center and some imagination.
But it’s not just about putting different succulents in traffic lights.
Real gardeners would never treat their succulents this way. Therefore, it is necessary to understand the care knowledge of succulents.
Another requirement, artistic talent, is a bit nebulous because, as we all know, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Still, a sense of harmony in what colors to mix and how to combine succulents of different textures, colors, sizes and shapes can be found between the stunning “jellyfish plants succulent” and a hanging basket that bears a slight resemblance to a jellyfish differences between. There are jellyfish.
As with any other art project, it’s best to create a plan on paper or on a computer before playing with live plants.
Once you’ve decided what you want your “jellyfish” to look like, decide on the color and shape. Check out photos of succulents or your own collection to determine which shapes and colors work well together.
Make a photo mosaic on your computer by stitching them together and see if the combination works. If you’re artistically gifted, paint a picture or drawing of your future jellyfish before buying live
If you’re not the planning type, spend some time at the center of the garden, putting together your favorite succulents and seeing how they look. It can take a while to choose between all the beautiful succulents, so bring a sandwich and a drink.
The main frame of the “jellyfish succulent” is a hanging basket, as can be seen in photos widely seen in home and gardening magazines.
You can turn it upside down to make it look like a jellyfish plants and risk the whole mess falling out if you don’t tie it up. You can also hang it up and create the shape of a jellyfish by cleverly placing succulents of different sizes.
Next to the traffic lights, you need the Earth. While you’ll need peat moss in the basket to hide the soil and have something to stick to the plants, the soil should be the real soil you use to grow your succulents: light, low in organic matter, full of rough bark, sand, and perlite.
You’ll need two types of succulents: hanging and attractive, flowered, or flowering. All succulents should have the same water and light needs.
Just as importantly, they are both winter breeders or summer breeders. Plants that are actively growing need more water and require fertilization early in their growth cycle.
If the succulents you choose have different needs, you’ll have a problem.
Here is a small selection of the most popular hanging succulents
Make your “jellyfish juicy”
Once you’ve gathered your materials and plants, it’s time to start making your green art.
The easiest way to do this is to hang your hanging basket, line it with peat moss or coconut palm, fill it with soil and insert plants. You need to create a jellyfish “body” by cleverly planting succulents of different sizes to form a hemisphere.
Another option, as shown in most of the photos on the web, is to do the same thing and turn your gondola upside down so your hemisphere is already in place.
How to Make DIY Jellyfish Plants
I’ll walk you through a step-by-step tutorial showing you how to make these three beautiful jellyfish aerial plants.
- 3 sea urchin shells, 3-4 inches wide
- 3 live air plants
- Food for air plants
Step 1: Take out the contents of the package.
Step 2: Plant at least 5 cascading succulents or air plants near the edge of the basket.
Step 3: Cover the bottom of the hanger with felt properly placed around the tentacle plant. This is necessary because the basket will be turned upside down.
Step 4: Spray it with air plant food (included in kit) or water.
Step 5: Repeat steps 2 and 3 for the other two shells.
Step 6: Plant the air plant upright or upside down.
Step 7: Remember to keep them moist!
Step 8: Hang or Place.
Hanging jellyfish should be placed in bright but indirect light and need a moist environment to thrive. Perfect for bright bathrooms or damp kitchens. A few sprays a week will usually provide adequate watering, but additional watering may be required in dry, hot conditions.
Shake off excess water, as these plants do not like to be overwatered and should never be left in water for long periods of time. Use rainwater whenever possible, especially in hard water areas, never use water from a water softener.
Watering jellyfish juicy
One of the great things about jellyfish succulents is that it consists mostly of succulents. We all know that succulents don’t need a lot of water, attention, or anything else. In fact, they can take care of themselves with little or no intervention from us. Just make sure you don’t overwater, as succulents are prone to root rot, which will likely kill your jellyfish succulents.
Specifically, water your jellyfish succulent thoroughly (draining excess water before putting it back in place). Do this at least once or twice every two weeks, depending on how quickly the succulent’s soil dries out. During the winter months, watering once a month is sufficient, as most succulents are dormant during this time.
Also, be careful not to get the rosettes wet when watering the succulent jellyfish, as the succulent leaves are prone to rot. Instead, water between plants (directly into the moss).
Remember, succulents need full sun to keep their colors bright. So if you don’t want them to start fading, find a place outdoors for your succulents that gets at least 5-6 hours of morning sunlight a day, such as a porch, balcony or patio.
As you can see, there are countless ways to make your own jellyfish succulents. You can even make a product that matches your unique style or aesthetic.
