Paludarium Moss

Well, it's not really moss but I didn't know that! We have it hanging off trees here in South Alabama - mostly close to the river but I managed to snag some from a nearby tree this afternoon. I decided to research so I would know what to call it, and was completely shocked when I saw the words "Tillandsia usneoides". If you look at my last post you will notice that all the air plants I received begin with the same name. Spanish Moss is actually not a moss at all but an air plant - who knew?

It will also flower just like the other air plants.
A tiny green flower is just getting started in this photo.


This is just a miscellaneous photo I found of Spanish Moss growing on an Oak Tree.
