This beautiful Tillandsia or commonly known as an Air Plant is a genus of bromeliads. When in flower it has delicate spikes coming directly from the centre , and also displays bright green leaves. They can be found in Central and South America, Mexico and the southern United States. Tillandsias do not stand with their roots in the soil to absorb food but use their roots to attach themselves to a tree, branch or stone. Because the Tillandsia extracts nutrients from the air, they need little water.
