Air Plant - Palecea
Tillandsia paleacea is as close as a Tillandsia species gets to a "Don't water me" plant if it is in humid conditions. It has tremendous capacity to absorb moisture from the air. Also, because it is so tomentose (fuzzy white scales called trichomes covering the leaves), it needs bright light over time. Also, T. paleacea has a tendency to rot if it gets wet frequently without enough air movement for it to dry out quickly enough. Pretty astor-violet blooms.
