Air Plant: Air Plant, one of the favourite aerophytic indoor plants in flowers with me. This is Tillandsia cyanea of Bromeliaceae.
The plants originate from south America where they grow epiphytic in rainy forests and also in deserts.
They absorb water and nutrients from air and do not need any soil though they have fibrous roots.

This is wonderful. Thanks for posting the pics.
Very fact it is flowering means this plant has adapted well to Pune climate.

Thanks for info, Where will get this plant in Pune??

The plants are in collection with a few plant lovers but are not on sale.
