Technically, I’m known as tillandsia usneoides, but more commonly go by Spanish Moss. You can find me hanging in the trees down South or lounging in the tropics. Fun fact: I’m an air plant and don’t need soil to survive — the best “no mess” addition to your plant collection. I’m also an Epiphyte, which literally translates to “upon a plant,” because in nature I use my roots to climb and hang from other trees. A common misconception is that I only need air to survive - not true! I need sun and water, too, and absorb H2O and nutrients through my long, moss-like leaves.
THE LIGHT I LIKE
As a houseplant, I love bright, filtered light.
HOW MUCH I DRINK
I love humidity and need ample moisture to thrive. To water, heavily mist 3-4 times per week. My favorite spot is a sunny bathroom!
