These guys are super neat since they feed off of the air. Where I come from, we have Tillandsia everywhere! Tillandsia usneoides is the brand in the Deep South. We call it Spanish Moss and some call it Beard Lichen, however, it is neither moss nor lichen (but, it was used as clothing by the Timucua Indians, and might be considered a textile). It is a Tillandsia. This photograph is taken from Martha Stewart Living and it is great to see more succulents and self sustaining plants in high-profile design.
