Hello,
I know the main green plant is an air plant. However, I don't know what this fuzzy plant on it is? It comes off and has a tiny stem to help it stay on the air plant. The strangest thing happened that I hadn't noticed before. I was spraying the plant as usual and this fuzzy thing started moving! All the little "spikes" were moving around like they were feelers on a bug. It stopped after it had enough water I guess. Can anyone help me find out what it is??

A thought, could that be an example of seed motility. Like the humidity-induced-motility on the awn of wild-wheat-grass that drills the seed into the soil. same thing might also needed by the air-plant seed to insert seed into crevices of damp moss or bark.
