Tillandsia (Latin: Tillandsia) are epiphytes, i.e. plants that have been shaped by nature in such a way that they do not need soil to live. They inhabit the branches of trees and feed on what gives them air and rainfall, because they have no roots at all. They absorb water and food through the leaves, usually grow slowly, although they can reach really impressive sizes in nature. Many species create sophisticated, hanging forms that can become a very original interior decoration. Different species of the genus Tillandsia can reach different target sizes and forms. The difference can also be seen in the coloration of their stiff leaves and flowers. However, they all have one thing in common - they are very original and interesting not only because of the way they function as plants without roots, but also because of their beauty and versatility of use in home arrangements.
