I have been fascinated lately with Air Plants. Also known as Tilandsia epiphytes. They don't need dirt to live. They just need to be dunked in water once a week or so, depending on how humid your area is.
My birthday was coming up, so I had the perfect excuse to get some.
I ordered them from Tropical Expressions. Since I am just starting out, I got the 11 pack of random plants. I ordered them on a Thursday and they arrived on the Tuesday. (Monday was a stat, so they might even have been here faster!).
Here they are soaking after their arduous journey:
And drying out, I attempted to figure out which plant they were and labelled em, correctly, I hope!
and all together:
I forgot to get a labelled pic of the Bulbosa....
Here is one of the little displays I have put together:
And the display I am most excited about (excuse the crap lighting...raining, AGAIN, here)
I glued together some of the wine corks I have been saving and put it up on a little stand. I am really pleased with this one.
