Bromeliads

Many bromeliads are epiphytes or what is more commonly known as air plants. The epiphyte attaches itself to a host plant for support, but does not take any nutrients from the host. Bromeliads thrive in bright light, which is why you will find them attached to tree branches. The tightly formed, rosette shaped leaves will create a cup in the center of the plant which collects water that enables them to go for long periods of time without watering.
An easy plant to grow, bromeliads will make a great addition to your plant collection.
