Remarkable Texas native bromeliad, Tillandsia recurvata, forms clumps of tens to a hundred tiny 1-2” plants. Seen here growing on a fig tree, living and dead plants form spherical colonies from which it gets its common name, Ball Moss. Living in the canopy, it spreads its seeds through the air, which stick on neighboring trees and telephone wires with the help of hairy filaments seen here erupting from the fruit.
