Airplants are bromeliads that these don’t require soil to survive. Using their tiny root systems to attach themselves to trees, rocks, or cacti, they naturally survive in jungles or deserts, from sea level to mountain regions. Their leaves have small scales, called trichomes which create their silver appearance as they absorb moisture and nutrients. Many varieties even go through a dramatic color change once they begin to bloom. The bloom of an air plant can last anywhere from a couple days to an entire year.
