Bromeliad growing on a tree branch, Monteverde cloud forest. Because of the almost constant cloud induced moist air, cloud forest trees are festooned with epiphytes, bromeliads and mosses. Bromeliads, like this one, have no root connection to the ground. They get their water and nutrients from the air.
