There’s a reason why air plants—also known as Tillandsia—are one of the most popular indoor plant types. For one, there are nearly 500 different species of this flowering perennial, boasting a variety of exotic shapes and vibrant colors. They are also durable, adaptable, and require no soil to grow (you heard that right). Instead, air plants sustain themselves on moisture from the air, and naturally grow off of tree branches, rocks, or other plants. So if watering that succulent every two weeks proved to be an elusive ambition, the air plant is for you.
