Paul Isley recorded this Aquacast at the Aquarium on July 26, 2016. Isley is the founder and owner of Rainforest Flora, Inc., a nursery specializing in tillandsias and bromeliads.

He discusses the genus Tillandsia, a family of easy-to-maintain plants that can grow without soil. They vary in shape, color, and size, providing attractive, modern-looking additions to homes and gardens. Their minimal need for moisture also makes them a drought-friendly choice.
