I don't have big flowerbeds in my garden. For that I just don't have enough time and green enough fingers. I do have a few different plants and lots of succulents though and one of those I probably get most excited about when they flower is my air plants. Air plants (Tillandsia) is a member of the Bromeliad family and is actually very easy to grow. They don't need soil and you only need to water them slightly (like in with a spray bottle). You can keep them both inside (in a well lit area) and outside although they don't always like to be in full sunlight all the time. I have two types of air plants in my garden. The type in the picture flowers every year while the other type makes big clumps yet doesn't really flower other than a single light purple flower and not even every year.
