Tillandsia Air Plant- The Crazy bulbosa

Tillandsia bulbosa – Another one for your collection! So unique and beautiful when in bloom.

Its bright green leaves are long, twisting and contorted which grow from a large bulbous base.

Flowering is spectacular! The bracts turn a bright red and a purple tubular flower springs up from the bract. Bloom time is from late winter to late spring.

 After flowering, many babies are produced along the base of the parent plant. Look at the picture and see what a glorious cluster it will form.
The bulbosa originates from Mexico, Columbia, and Brazil.

Keep in light to full shade. No direct sun. Soak in room temperature water for 15-30 minutes. When humidity is running high once a week and mist several times in between. In dry humidity (winter) it is best to soak at least twice a week.

Fertilize with Bromiliad/Tillandsia fertilizer every 3-4 weeks for a healthy, growing, and producing plant. Fertilizer is not necessary to keep you bulbosa alive and thriving, but does help for active growth.

Have a Great Week,

The Tulsa Flea, New Air Plants and Hotspot.

It has been a hectic and tiring week at my part time job. this job means I am on call whenever they have work. Normally that is only at the last week or so of the month. This month it started much earlier, which get around to what I am yakking about.

Last Saturday, I told several of you that I would be at the Tulsa Flea this Saturday.  Not going to make it! I am so sorry if you had planned on purchasing air plants. Email me if you need plants or have any questions.

And I have been having internet connection problems for a week or so. I have used Hugh's Net for the last 2 1/2 years. It was never very speedy, but lately I thought I was back in the old dial-up times.
So I have canceled them and now have my own hotspot!!. Right now is the first time for using it and it is so fast! Hallelujah!

Time to find something to eat. Over the weekend I will get pictures and information on the new air plants I got in last week.

Have a Great Weekend,

Air Plants and Cute Boxes all Ready for a Weddings, Anniversaries, Gifts

My goodness I have been so busy this week!

A few weeks ago, I had a thought in the back of my mind of offering  Air Plants for wedding favors. It seems like a bride and her mother were reading my mind. Because, that Saturday at the Tulsa Flea, theses two came up to my table all excited about using air plants for favors.

Two days ago I got an order for 40 air plants. Not for wedding favors but for the centerpieces. I was so excited!

These are the boxes I have been working on for the last few days. I needed them to be big enough, but not to big for the different size air plants. I am planning on having them ready for you to download in a few days. You will recognize some of them from pinterest.
