Do All Plants Need Dirt?

As we have learned, plants require air, sun and water for photosynthesis to occur. But how important is dirt? Did you know there are plants called “air plants” that will NOT grow well in dirt? They prefer to sit on other plants, rocks or logs and grow without the aid of soil. The scientific name for these plants is “epiphytic bromeliads.” What does epiphytic mean? Can you research and find two other species of plants that are epiphytic? Show me the correct answer for a ticket!
