Tillandsias, also known as airplants, are amazing small plants that do not need soil to grow. Each leaf on the air plant is covered in specialized scales known as trichomes, which have the ability to absorb water and nutrients. Airplants love indirect light and humidity. They thrive in rainforests on but will live happily and bloom beautifully while enhancing potted gardens, attached to piece of driftwood, placed in a seashell or in an aerated glass globe.
Succulents are drought tolerant plants that can be grown indoors or out depending on climate. Most succulents hold moisture in their thick leaves and stems which allows little maintenance and water. Most succulents will bloom in their lifetime. They enjoy very bright light and need a soil high in coarse sand for good drainage.
The poinsettia is a high demand seasonal product that requires decades of experience to precisely time the color change (photoperiodism) and deliver fresh to a large number of nation-wide grocers. In the United States, December 12 is National Poinsettia Day. The star-shaped leaf pattern is said to symbolize the Star of Bethlehem, and the red color represents the blood sacrifice through the crucifixion of Jesus.
