air plant

Anyone heard about this live plant that does not require soil to grow on? This type of plant only needs air and moisture. Dipping the plant into water for 1-2hr and it’ll turn from silver to green. How cool is this!

This plant has lots of options to be dressed. Imagine all the ways you can display this little guys.
