The Tillandsia Usneoides, also known as Spanish moss, is a plant without roots from the epiphyte family. This plant gets its water and nutrients through its leaves from the (moist) air and raindrops. The Tillandsia Usneoides has curly grayish and long down-growing leaves that mostly hang over the branches of trees. The beauty of this kind is that it spreads itself and living area by the help of Mother Nature. Mainly by wind or birds, this air plant is being moved and spread to other branches for example and so continues to develop and grow in other places, which is very different from our other air plants.
The Tillandsia Usneoides mostly lives in tropical areas with high humidity and under the right circumstances can grow to a length of 1 to 2 meters! The original habitat of this plant ranges from Argentina to southeastern United States.
The Tillandsia Ionantha is one of the most common species within the epiphyte family of Tillandsia. Because of its small and compact form, this plant is very easy to use in beautiful flower arrangements and bouquets. They initially appear in desert climates. The Tillandsia Ionantha requires very little care compared to other species of Tillandsia, which makes it an outstanding and easy-care product to have.
There are many kinds of Ionantha and they are mostly native to Central and South America
