    Cool Tillandsia utriculata L

    A neighbor gives me air plants as they fall out of his trees...this one was given to me a few months back. I put it in an old easter basket and got a flower spike shortly thereafter. This is what it looks like as it is blooming. It is hard to tell, but there are a couple white blooms peeking out.

    Wonderful! Mine is right at the same stage of spiking. Don't forget to shake those seeds into the trees, since these are considered endangered. Darn Mexican weevil.

    I really like these bromiliads. I have one Tillandsia that's on a piece of grapewood with a little Den hymenanthum growing below it. Looking forward to one or both of them blooming!
    Best,
    Tony

    In my neighborhood these grow as readily as weeds. There are many trees full of them. My big oak tree has a couple right now, and i'd assume as time goes by there will be more. I was suprised when I looked them up that they are classed as endangered. They sure aren't endangered around here...lol!

    Glad to hear that your area has a lot of them! You can always take the seeds to a big tree in an area that doesn't have them...
