    Check out this score of Tillandsia.........

    Recently I picked all kinds of free Tillandsia and Bromeliads..., A local Dr. that traveled the world doing research on plants was selling off his collection and moving.




    Two greenhouses 40'x 100' full from top to bottom. Everything for sale..

    The first trip I made I bought a nepenthes Miranda and some tillandsia. I was short on time so it was a short visit. My 2nd trip I had a lot more time...... And The tillandsia and bromeliads were free...... I picked up two Nepenthes Coccinea in 8" pots for 30 dollars and a succulent for a gift to my mother.



    So I went a little crazy grabbing specimen size plants... The furnaces have issues and need repaired and its around 10 thousand a year to heat the houses so everything has to go before they turn the power off......









    I brought home a lot of big clumps... Along with a few Pinguicula and the nepenthes..
    I have no idea if I will be able to go back one last time but Its an honor to have some of the dr.'s Plants... Thought some of you would like this...

    You have GOT to be kidding. That is just unbelievable.

    Congratulations! Thanks for providing some of those plants with a good home. It's a darn shame to see such a spectacular collection being split up and scattered to the wind... Specimen-size plants like those take a lot of time and love to create.

    That's awesome! I should have had you go mini-Tillandsia shopping for me!

    LOL My funkiana looks nothing like that! Just as well -- wouldn't have room for it if it did.
