    home depot tillandsia

    While roaming around my local Home Depot today, I saw a stand of really nice, big looking Tillandsias that weren't their usual brand, so I yoinked them - bulbosa, ionantha, graomogolensis and tenuifolia (from their tags). Pic:



    I might go back for more because there's one that almost feels like a succulent that I had a couple years back that I think I saw, but didn't have time to look too closely for it.

    Cool find at the big box. What is that bulbous plant on the left surrounded by small colored pots and snake-looking arms? (Doesn't look like something they would stock...)
    All the best,

    marvinI: Yeah! Everyone needs some orchids, sundews, pings, broms and tillandsias in their nepenthes collection .


    rl7836: That's the tillandsia bulbosa! The tags on the plants indicate that they bought a handful off of a specialty brom/tilly grower here in CA, which totally rocks my world. I was walking through as they had just pulled the rack out from the back to set up and hadn't even set it in it's final display, so hopefully they haven't been pawed at by dirty hands and caught whatever pests run rampant on the rest of home depot plants yet.

    seedjar & blokeman: it's also the biggest one I've ever seen in my life so I couldn't help but buy it, my poor credit card!

    It's very colorful, too... a really, really nice find. The only ones I've seen up close had relatively plain coloration - that typical Tillandsia green/blue.
