As an airplant, this beautiful flowering plant adores warm humid conditions and bright indirect light. Hang is from curtain rails, your indoor tree of choice or off of a stylish decor piece to add that extra dimension to your Urban jungle.

Despite its name, Spanish Moss is found in America's growing from trees in warm moist swamplands, soaking up moisture and nutrients from the air, and got its name from French Explorers who likened it to the beards of Spanish conquistadors.
