    i have 5 large (they are large for the mini ones at home depot, atleast) bromeliads i want to get rid of. i'll take anything that doesn't require a dormancy, except D. filiformis, i'd like to trade for one of those.

    i'll even take a couple leaves if you have something really interesting.

    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    umm, why wouldn't i be? i'm not interested in buying anything, i could but i'm not interested. i'd rather trade because these things are taking up alot of space.

    i'll even take D capensis! i'll take ANYTHING.

    after looking at over 20 pages of bromeliad pics, i couldn't find a single one of what i have.

    the scape is bright crimson red, has yellow flowers. the scape is oval, serrated, and flat. I got it last year as a miniature bromeliad at home depot. then it died and i seperated the pups

    Sounds like a tillandsia... Does it have gray-green narrow leaves?

    hmmm will it survive if mailed to singapore? ive been thinking of trying a bromeliad
    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    no, it is not a tilly. it's a common garden center brom.

    it has the same shape flower as the tillandsia you see potted in soil for sale, but the color and texture is difference. the whole plant is plastic-like, not fuzzy like a tillansia

    also, the bottom half of the leaves has started turning pink, it's not a genetic thing, it was green when a bought it. it has started changing colors because of my lights. they have broad leaves, not narrow like a tilly.


    it would survive, but i'm kind of scared to ship out of the us without a permit. i've done it before but it's risky. pm me what you have to trade and we'll see.
