Unique perennial, it is a root parasitic plant, often found host on oak trees, heath family…and yet it can survive on its own when there is no opportunity to host on other plant. It is a hemiparasitic plant.

Spanish Moss (Tillandsia usneoides) seeds from a seed pod. 松蘿菠蘿從一個種夾中取出的種子.

This is a tropical tender perennial mainly for its unique silvery green foliage.  Very easy to grow.  Best growing in full sun to partial shade location.  In the native habitat, they are growing on the tree branches trailing down.   Require high humidity.  Tiny yellowish green flowers in late spring to early summer.   Just hang the cuttings/plants in somewhere bright and humid location.  Avoid plant contact with metal because plants do not react well.  USDA Zones:7-11.  Mature size:8′-10′(L) X 3″-6″(W).  Propagate often by cuttings but also can be from seeds.  Bag the seed heads if you want the seeds for easy collection.

菠蘿科空氣菠蘿屬的多年生草本.  這個一般來說喜溼熱的松蘿空鳳主要是以觀葉為主的.  非常容易種植.  最好栽種在全日照到半日照處的濕潤環境裡. 雖然說它的耐寒程度其實也還不錯. 春末夏初時成熟植株會開黃綠色小小不起眼的花朵. 植株不喜接觸到金屬所以吊掛它的材質要注意避金屬類. 植株喜熱,耐寒性尚可.  成熟植株垂掛下的長度達8-10呎,寬幅僅3-6吋.  主以植株分段來無性繁殖,亦可由種子繁殖.  若要便於收集種子,種莢未開裂前就要紮袋包起準備.
