Tillandsia usneoides x T. recurva 'Kimberly'

Hybrid Ball Spanish Moss

This is a compact epiphytic plant, but it's basically a hybrid of that gray stuff you see hanging from trees in the southern United States, Tillandsia usneoides and a more compact species Tillandsia recurva. The result is this cool new plant that looks like a compact spanish moss. The very small green flowers are fragrant. The slowly trailing silvery gray foliage hangs from trees and baskets, but doesn't really hang like traditional spanish moss. I love this form

These are epiphytic plants related to bromeliads that need no soil and grow just from moisture in the air and passing rain. Easy to grow, they want air circulation with some moisture, especially in drier areas. Tolerate a light frost well, but can freeze in a colder climate. Can be grown indoors if given ample light and air circulation. Will adapt to full sun, best in bright shade. Outdoors without rain, I try and hose down about three times a week, they will tolerate drought though. If they get very dry, they can be rehydrated by submerging in water for an hour. Indoors they can be misted daily if the air is dry.
