 Corsa International Tillandsia

The Tillandsia family are decorative and often bizarre plants which are only found in the New World (America).  Most Tillandsias often grow with orchids on trees or cacti.  However, the parasites because of their special gift crystallize the necessary moisture and food from the air.  They therefore require no soil to live, what makes this Tillandsia fairly easy to maintain and perfect for selling to corporate clients.
