Well, I would think so ... it would take something drastic (like burning them) to kill them ... please post some pics !!!!!!!

I counted , all 24 are there. I displayed them briefly to show them off , then followed the directions that were in the package to "soak for 2-4 hours to refresh "

Excellent ☺ Tai ~ !

They resemble the tops from pineapples, don't they? Pineapples are Bromeliads - I've grown pineapple plants from tops cut from a regular old pineapple that I bought at Safeway before on several occasions.

Tillandsia's are remotely related (distant cousins) to pineapples, but are in a genus of their own

Very excellent display, and excellent pics!

Thanks, Tai! I love that there are quite a few different ones there. I've had a few, and they are pretty 'blah' until they bloom, and then they are incredible!

"Tai's Tillandsia's" has a nice ring to it, don't you think? Maybe the name of your new little shop when you outgrow the hair & nails salon - you can run it as a side business, maybe even in the Clackamas Town Center, since it's being abandoned ☺ as we saw the last time we were there ... what do you think?

I don't mind having a side business besides the salon. I really enjoy having plants around in the salon. We will see where these plants take off to!

I'm enjoying pairing the twigs with the Tillandsia. A straight twig might have a plant with more movement for contrast.

By the way- thank you Nick for the Oak twigs and the great idea!

You simply cannot do better than that! Those lichen covered Oregon white oak twigs themselves are a thing of beauty, and with the tillandsia it's a perfect match. Those are sure to invite attention; they look like something from a far and distant ancient land. ☺

I have all the plants on display now at the salon. There are 4 hanging from the ceiling and the rest are attached to the twigs and placed on shelves.
Thank you for all the suggestions on the Tillandsia. I've been interested in these plants for a while and look forward to finding out more about their habitats and origins.
