Pitcairnia tabuliformis, is a species of Bromeliad the is native to Mexico. This plant lives in the Stove House.

Most Bromeliads are epiphytic which means that they grow on other plants. This is why they are often called 'air plants'. These plants are not parasitic, they only use other plants for support. They get their nutrients from the air and rainfall.
