In lieu of a cactus, I am posting a new purchase I just made at an incredible nursery this morning. It is a tillandsia or air plant, which is a type of bromeliad. These are the epitome of easy to care for plants...just a mist of water every month. Mine gets an occasional splash of water when rain gets through my screen in the back room. I had lost 2 of my plants about a year ago, and have just replaced them. I love the look of all of them in this shallow garden.
This is one of my new ones! It looks like the bloom will be my fav color, ORANGE. I have no idea the type tillandsia it is, but I will try and research it out. The plant is a darker green, and very weird, like an octopus, or squid. It is unique, for sure. I am surprised by the price of these things, but my two new plants cost me 10 dollars and change. Does that seem high, or low to you??? You can guss what I thought since I am such a cheapo. :)
Well, have a happy rest of what's left of Cactus Monday!
