Small hand sculpted hanging pot with Spanish moss is an 'air plant' in the bromeliad family. It is noted for its weeping silver leaves that dangle down from old or dead trees. It is often found near rivers, lakes, and ponds. It is native to the southeastern USA from NC to Texas along the coastal plain in high humidity areas.
The slender long stems attach themselves to trees and sometimes fences for support. The plant has no roots and the gray scales on stems and leaves are means of obtaining moisture and nutrition. It needs high humidity and pollution-free conditions to grow. It will need occasional pruning to prevent it from becoming too heavy and causing branch breakage or causing too much shading for the tree. It can be grown indoors with regular mistings and humid conditions.
