    Default Tillandsia cyanea

    Found this mass of plants in the dumpster one morning at work, there was a florist in the same complex that did mostly Palm Beach mansions, I never dove into a dumpster so fast. Placed them underneath my vandas and laying them on the lava rock I use as ground cover, they seem to be happy.Name:  P1020042.JPG
