Replacement for an old willow bird house (not built by me) that, due to water and weather and age, was falling apart.
The stand I was replacing was about 4′ high, providing a place for the tillandsias above the surrounding plants. Tillandsias like air movement so, like my tillandsia stand 1, this is built out of spaced wood slats. The spaces between the slats provide plenty of openings for the wind, and places to fit tillansias. It’s sort of a fruit crate with legs, built from redwood and cedar.
