Sorry I didn't get right back with pic's ... we took the dogs for a walk around the neighborhood.

Anyway, I took the basket out of the tree and there are 3 Tillandsia in the old suet cage. I do remember planting one on each side of the metal cage but I thought they were two different types of Tillies. Anyway, the cage has three plants attached and growing on it and when I went back out and took it down to inspect it, I spotted two little baby pups at the base of one of the larger ones.

Two little pups and the one I found on the ground after Hurricane Matthew that I stuck in the boot of the palm tree next to where the other is hanging:

ScotTi said: I picked up a new pup during the holidays. This one I look really forward to growing as it is said to grow up to a 5'-6' spread. At this time the spread is just under a foot on this Alcantarea 'Julieta'

That's a beauty, Scott, and one I hadn't heard of before. I will keep a look out for it.

Nice Tills, Lin, they have grown quite a bit.
Love the coloring of the Alcantarea 'Julieta' Thumbs up

These are the two I picked up at Lowe's, they both have offsets starting, there were several I don't have but I need more color in my brome garden, love the purple spots on Morado.

I agree those are both very nice! There aren't any photos of either Neoregelia 'Martin' or Neoregelia 'Morado' in the database so we could use a few! I especially love the looks of that 'Martin'!

That Neo 'Martin' is prolific, has no barbs and gets great color when in full sun. It's one of my favorite Bromeliads.

It needs to mature, as it looks nothing like the mature plant.

Just for fun here, take a stab at the name of this "sweet confection" Neo. This one is a easy to find around these parts.

This was purchased as Neo "Yang" some years ago, but I do not think that it is. This plants older leaves are on avg 23" long.
