The Tillandsia Juncea is a large, grass like plant with straight, thin leaves. Very easy to grow these air plants are a favorite for tall vases and home decor.
*The term ‘air plants’ is the common name for Tillandsias, a type of Bromeliad, because they don’t need to be planted in soil. In the wild, deserts of Central and South America, the southern United States and the West Indies, Tillandsias colonize objects such as rocks and trees by clinging on to them with their roots.
Air plants are epiphytes and need no soil because water and nutrients are absorbed through the leaves. The roots are mainly used as anchors.
