I agree and it is always amazing to see such a showy bloom for such a small plant. Thumbs up

Is a Tillandsia a bromeliad?? I always think of them as
Air Plants. I will have to look at these plants as a possibility
in our Hot and humid Houston, TX

Hi Willinator !! I don't know exactly if a Tillandsia is a bromeliad. I think an expert should answer that.
But about the possibility of growing them in Houston I think you have the perfect climate for them.This Tillandia vernicosa grows in the North of Argentina with a hot and humid weather.

There are many plants in the Bromeliad family with Tillandsias being one of them.

Well it does appear that they are members of the Bromeliad family and
I guess I need to look for places to buy such plants as Tillandsia vernicosa
and other Tillandsia. And what kind of container or media is best to grow
them.

Willinator, I only tie the Tillandsias to a branch. As they grow in nature. I don't add any media

I am going to have to look for wood to tie them to and then find some of these
"Air Plants" to grow as they seem like a wonderful addition to my gardens.
