Pensive Tuesday: Why Tillandsias?
Tillandsias have been increasing in popularity. Why? Well, I know a few reasons whyI love them....
A Table Full of Tillies
They are portable. They can grow anywhere. Time ago, people used to be born in one place, live in one place, and die in one place. These days, good luck with that. Tillies don't need their native earth to grow. Just some water and sun, anywhere on planet Earth, and they're good to go. No roots required.
They can grow on practically anything. Mine are growing very well on an old CD rack. What have you got? I'll bet there's something in your garage or attic that would make your Tillies happy.

Tillies are tough. They can grow almost anywhere. They can grow on almost anything. They just need a little sunshine and water and they are good to go. What plants for our age! Why do you love your Tillies??
