Spanish Moss is a delicate silvery-grey air plant that is often used to hang in trees or as a gorgeous decor piece without the need for soil.

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.

Fun fact: Tillandsia Usneoides is not a Moss at all and is actually relative of the Pineapple.

Please note: Tillandsia are non-toxic to pets and humans.
