Tillandsia is a genus in the family Bromeliaceae, native to the forests, mountains and deserts of Central and South America. Some tillandsia are so-called myrmecophyte that live in symbiosis with ant colonies. They offer the insects living room and sometimes food, while the ants keep predators away from them.
