Just when you thought there couldn’t be plants easier to take care of than succulents, along came the air plant (also known as Tillandsia).
These small plants get their water and nutrients from the air by absorbing it through their leaves, eliminating the need for soil or frequent watering. While they do need to be spritzed on occasion, air plants require virtually no care.
