FREE Crochet Pattern: Crochet Air Plant Pot | Make these fun, bright ombre-colored pots to display your air plants. 4 pot sizes are included in the pattern.

I am pretty excited to share this Crochet Air Plant Pot with you today. I was gifted a large air plant last month and it’s sort of been sitting on the widow sill next to my cactus since then. I haven’t given it too much thought until I saw this fabulous Crochet Air Plant Jellyfish by One Dog Woof. So cute, right? Although an air plant will be perfectly happy and healthy sitting in the bright windowsill, it is a bit fun to make a crochet pot for it.

Because air plants range in different sizes, I included 4 sizes, so hopefully you can make a pot that fits your air plant perfectly. You can also make them taller or shorter depending on the plants you have. 

Speaking of plants, are you new to the air plant phenomenon? These adorable little guys are of the genus Tillandsia, and have over 650 species! They absorb water and nutrition from their leaves, not roots, so they don’t need soil and have been affectionately nicknamed “air plants.” They do need water, however, depending on your climate you can soak them occasionally or spritz them with water. I bought mine from Amazon and they were on my doorstep in 48 hours! They were green and happy and I am hoping I can take good care of them (the seller I bought from sent fertilizer spritz and a handy care sheet). I have kept my cactus green and healthy for 2 years now, so I am thinking I might be able to branch out a bit. Air Plants are great for us “black-thumb” folks. 
Ahem…

  1. Thanks for this very nice looking pot. Great for our air plants–but could be used for lots of other places at home/work/etc. Love the colors you used.

  2. Love the air plant pots, thank you for the pattern. I had several of these, I guess for a year, now will pot them now.
    Have a great summer.
