Some air plants will develop long lasting blooms.

Air plants are also known as, Tillandsia and are in the bromeliad family. Amazingly, these need no soil because water and nutrients are absorbed through the leaves. The roots are used as anchors only. Reproduction is by seeds or by offsets called “pups”. A single plant could have up to a dozen pups. (Thanks to Wikipedia for this info!)

I’m enjoying arranging these unique plants in terrariums, glass spheres and even attached to driftwood. The possibilities are endless.
