Do you have a ‘brown thumb’? Perhaps try growing some Epiphytes! “Air plants" are plants that grow on and are supported by other plants, such as trees; and are native to the rainforests. Epiphyte comes from the Greek word "epi," meaning "upon," and "phyton," meaning "plant." They are not parasitic and derive nutrients and water from rain, the air, and dust. They are dependent upon wind and sunlight to live. Ephiphytic plants use photosynthesis for energy. Register in advance and learn about these fascinating plants!
