Air Plant; Ball Moss
Tillandsia spp.

This wiry plant is an epiphyte, it lives on tree limbs, powerlines and even old metal fences! I had seen them growing in humid central and south Florida, but I was really surprised to see them in arid, central Texas! I spotted these growing on an old fence in Boerne. They grow on the trees, but do not cause the tree any harm unless they block the sunlight from the leaves.
