look at me
tillandsias are in the bromeliad family and most of them are totally ephiphytic. this one, tillandsia cyanea can also be grown in an orchid mix. I've got this one tied to the trunk of a ficus with a bit of spaghnum moss wrapped around. they prefer morning sun only or dappled sunlight. this one has just flowered, together with the beautifully coloured flowers and the heady perfume it's crying out to be admired.
