Tillandsia Brachycaulos

Plant Story

The Brachycaulos is part of a large group of plants in the Tillandisa family with hundreds of different species native to various regions and climates throughout the world. Air plants absorb nutrients and moisture through their leaves and use their small roots to attach to other plants and surfaces rather than rooting in soil. Air plants come in all shapes and sizes and are easy to maintain.
