This strange ‘air plant’ occurs naturally from Argentina to the southern United States, including the Louisiana bayous. It is not a moss at all, but a member of the pineapple family (Bromeliaceae), which is often found hanging on the branches of trees. It looks similar to Usnea, an unrelated lichen which also grows on tree branches, and this is reflected in the species name ‘usneoides’.

*As plants are natural products, form, pattern and colour will vary slightly.

Prefers filtered light to bright light.

Keep moist as much as possible, so mist the plant whenever it is dry. Avoid misting if the plant is already damp, as too much moisture is not good for the plant either.

Does not typically require fertilising.

Cool to warm.
