Spanish Moss or Tillandsia usneoides is the most widespread member of the Bromeliad family.
It has a widespread natural distribution from Central and South America and the Southern States of North America. It is a fascinating plant that grows with no roots, each new plant growing from the leaf axial of another, thus producing long, hanging clumps.
It also flowers, producing numerous very small, scented green or yellow flowers. Fun and easy to grow and very versatile for Art and flower arranging. Just hang it up somewhere with good air-movement and soak with water by spraying or dunking once or twice a week and allow to dry.
The ‘Spanish Moss’ I offer is a lovely thick form.
