Botanical Name: Tillandsia
Common Name: Air Plant
Tillandsia, is a funky member of the Bromeliaceae family with about 650 different species! Air plants are typically found in Mesoamerica, the Caribbean, Mexico, and the South-Eastern region of the United States.
Tillandsia are epiphytes which mean they live on other plants. They don’t depend on roots for their nutrients, instead they absorb through their leaves. And did you know they can bloom? It’s only once in their life, but they are also known to produce offshoots known as “pups”.

- Prefers dry climates over humid
