Tillandsia

This Tillandsia is the most common air plant I see in the area and think they are remarkable in their simplicity and beauty.

Air Plant

Tillandsia (Air Plants) are epiphytes, meaning that they attach to other plants or rocky substrates as a means of support. Their roots are used solely for attachment rather than absorbing nutrients or water via roots, air plants rely on the moisture in the atmosphere to grow and thrive. This particular photo shows a rather large one that grows in a tree next to my driveway.
