Tillandsia is a gender which comes from the family of Bromelia. The plants are also referred to as air plants. This unique species does not necessarily have roots as they do not need them, sometimes only to attach themselves to other plants or trees. Not all Tillandsia species can be called air plants as some do have roots that need soil to grow in. Most of the plants do not need any soil in order to grow and live, which is why they got the name air plants.
