  • Tillandsia usneoides, or more commonly known as Spanish Moss or Old Man's Beard (or whiskers) is a very hardy plant. It grows long strands of thin stems with short silvery-green leaves. The plants form thick clumps and the strands can reach metres in length. Small yellow-green flowers bloom at various times of the year and are quite fragrant.

    Grow draped over a branch or other suitable object in a position that receives good light and good airflow. If indoors in warm dry environments, or outdoors in very dry, hot weather, water by misting or dunking every few days.

    **Plant only (accessories not included).
