Tillandsia Usneoides - Spanish Moss
Spanish moss (Tillandsia usneoides) is a member of a group of bromides called air plants. These plants have no roots, and absorb all the moisture and nutrients they need through specialized scales on their stringy leaves. These unusual plants are grown indoors as accents on driftwood, rocks or other decorative items. Although the flowers are inconspicuous and not particularly attractive, they have a pleasant fragrance. Spanish Moss in dryer climates will need good soakings 2-3 times per week. Soak 3-4 hours.
