Tilandsia… What is it?


Tilandsia

 

 

 

Ever heard of an air plant? It seems impossible, but there are plants that don’t need to grow out of the ground. The remarkable Tilandsia genus of plants are all ever greens that require only sunlight, water, and air. I’ve been wanting one for awhile. They’re great for crafts and adding to little villages, especially ball moss. I also really like the color. While many are green, some actually grow in bright pink colors. The flowers are quite large for such small plants, although, they can grow to be very large!

I find it really fascinating that these plants can live on practically nothing. If humans could do that, there would be no war.
