Reach For The Sky

Another find on one of those morning shoots. These plants belong to a family called Tillandsia and are native to S. America. They are similar to orchids in that they can attach themselves to trees or any organic substrate and wrap their roots around them to anchor them in place. They can be fascinating especially when they bloom. I never got around to collecting these but was slowly getting there.
