Bromeliads

Most bromeliads prefer partial shade, although a few (like the Aechmea below) can tolerate direct sunlight. They can be potted, attached to trees or planted in the soil, however bromeliads are like orchids - care needs to be given to the planting medium.

There are a vast number and variety of bromeliads. The links below are a good starting point.
