Fresh Air From a Green Table!


As this might seem to be on the Utopia domain, you just might reconsider rejecting the idea, because in concept is brilliant.

Just look at this lovely table you see here, then let me introduce you to the plants it’s got growing on it. Tillandsias, also known as Air Plants grow without soil, feeding instead on the moisture it finds in the air (dust, decaying leaves and insect matter). These plants rely on a host structure for support, but don’t worry, the table wasn’t alive to begin with.*

But then again, the table wouldn’t be killed by this whole ordeal, as *the Tillandsias that grow on top of it use a host structure simply for structural support. Seems like a fair deal to me.

These tables are made for the freshening of a home, as the Tillandsias absorb CO2 from the air and produce oxygen in the night. The table is the perfect vessel for this magical transmission, as it’s right in the center of all the action. That’s where the cat usually is in my apartment. No chewie, kitty!
