    This listing is for live HINA HINA, also called 'Pele's Hair'/Spanish Moss (Tillandsia usneoides).  We grow this air plant everywhere in our Haiku, Maui garden.  This moss is an epiphyte and is very popular with orchids growers.  Hina Hina can be kept at the base of your orchids plants or draped in trees keeping the orchid roots moist.  Add this extremely easy to grow plant to your collection.  
    We offer this Hina Hina live moss  two ways,  in a MOSS BALL, about the size shown in the listing photos.   A pink cotton string is tied with a bow around each live Moss Ball.   The other way the Moss is offered is in tiny nests/wreath shapes, also shown.  There are three (3) tiny moss wreaths in each set and they are each about 3" across in size.
    Hina Hina is sometimes used for Lei making in Hawaii, the twisted strands produce a delicate looking 'living' lei.
     Hina Hina drapes from most of the branches in our garden (please see listing photos) I also like to dot a little silvery gray tuft of this moss at the base of potted plants, let it 'spill' out. You can easily grow more moss by tearing a little piece off of your existing clump. Share your surplus bits of moss with gardening friends...simply keep this air plant misted with water-watch it go instantly from Gray (Hinahina in Hawaiian) to green when you water it.
