      Airplants (if I understand correctly) don't need water, and attach to a living/dead host (branches, etc.). Here's a few pix, but I will try to find better pics online.

      From Wikipedia:

      The thinner-leafed varieties grow in rainy areas and the thick-leafed varieties in areas more subject to drought. Moisture and nutrients are gathered from the air (dust, decaying leaves and insect matter) through structures on the leaves called trichomes.

      Tillandsia species are epiphytes (also called aerophytes or air plants) i.e. they normally grow without soil while attached to other plants. Epiphytes are not parasitic, depending on the host only for support.

      Pictures of the possibly juvie black widow female and the male are on my new thread. The "male" (don't know if it is a male or not) showed up again today so I quickly got a couple pics of him before he went and hid.
