Tillandsia, commonly known as air plants, are spotted everywhere I turn here at Greenstems. Some are big with thick leaves while others are small and wispy, but whatever their size, you can’t help but be drawn to their interesting form and lively shape. The y are show-stoppers that can turn an ordinary arrangement into a conversation piece.
As you would think, air plants gather moisture and nutrients from air rather than soil, so a healthy, moist environment is necessary for survival. They love to be misted once a week and dunked once a month. Super easy to care for and super delightful to look at, how could you not fall in love…..

Spring may not be in Vancouver yet, but it’s in full swing here at Greenstems! We have lots of spring beauties to brighten up any space. Distract yourself with colourful parrot tulips, a posie of darling ranunculas, or big beautiful flowering cherry or magnolia branches. Our fingers are crossed that the sun will shine soon, but until then, flowering up your home is a sure way to get your spring started.
Chances are that if you have visited us in the shop, we’ve talked with you about one of our biggest philosophies here at Greenstems. That we want quality flowers to be affordable to everyone – and break down this stereo-type that flowers are unaffordable for everyday.
One of the creative ways we are doing this is by carrying a select number of beautiful bud vases that when you purchase from us can be done up with a stunning floral design, and then going forward need only to house one or a few stems and be just as beautiful as a simple composition. This allows you to then come back and visit us to pick up those few select stems and watch the season as it changes with your new floral piece. They are a bit of an investment initially – but we feel are absolutely worth it in the long run.
Say goodbye to droopy grocery stems and hello to stunning florals for you home or office!
Price for above arrangement: $60
