Bromeliad, Everglades National Park, Florida- click to see full size image
A large bromeliad, with strap-like leaves can be seen just below the large branch in this photo. This one has wide strap-like leaves and is growing on the trunk of a tree. It is a epiphyte, which means it attaches itself to another plant. Epiphytes are sometimes called air plants because they do not need to root into soil to survive.
