Today's pick comes from Racked Philly editor Julie Davis.

Whirly Hanging Candleholder, $4.95 at CB2

Having been blessed with an unparalleled ability to kill a houseplant just by looking at it, I've vowed to put an end to all the carnage and only try my hand at Tillandsia. Also known as air plants, these trendy bromeliads are really easy to care for; they don't require soil to grow, and they don't need round-the-clock waterings.

After some searching for an air plant holder, I stumbled upon CB2's Whirly Hanging Candleholder, which proved to be the perfect way to hang my Tillandsia collection next to a window. Priced at just $4.95, the candleholder is a downright bargain (I've seen similar versions on sites like Etsy for as much as $100), but be warned: These things are really easy to break, which I've done on multiple occasions.
