    Shortbus has Tillandsia! :-O

    Well, I was poking around the local greenhouse and a massive shelf of tillies and clumps of spanish moss caught my attention. I'll have to go back and try and get a pic of their display it is massive. Anyhow, I picked up a large clump of moss which is said to have been "fumigated" for pests and half a dozen other tillies "I couldn't live without". Here is a photo or two. I'll update this thread periodically with changes.







    Thanks For Looking!

    This thing decided to flower it's heart out! I've pollinated a few flowers for fun.

    @DragonsEye and corky: Thanks guys! It's a sunny day and seemingly good time to update. The rosey flowering wonder has turned green again. I'm not sure if any of the flowers I tried to pollenate took or not. I don't see anything that makes me think it worked. Oh well, purdy plants comin' at ya...
