I had no idea Tillandsia were this hardy. How long have you been growing them Larry?

Hi Evan and Sue--Tillandsias are tender tropicals. I just carry the rock inside when freezing temps threaten. It spends the winter in our tropical garden on the second floor of our house (http://davesgarden.com/guides/articles/view/760/). To mount tillandsias on rocks, I simply use a bit of E6000 glue which is pretty much invisible when it dries.

I enjoyed the article Larry and misinterpreted the size of that rock. Beautiful vignette.
