Air plants or Tillandsia, a type of Bromeliad, are tropical and subtropical plants that have adapted to life in trees or other substrates. These plants acquire their moisture and most nutrients from the air and rainfall. If temperatures and hours of sunlight are kept similar to their native habitats, they will display brilliant flowers once a year.
