Thank you. That one is an Interspecific. I do grow the Miniata type as well, those are the standard 'ball on a stick' looking ones.

Epiphylums come in incredible colors. They do tend to get large, and alas the flowers only last for about two days at best. But the flowers are as big as dinner plates like 8 -10 inches (20-25 cm). They're also really easy to propagate to share with friends... just cut off a piece, stick in potting soil and it will root.

This is an image of Tillandsia Cotton Candy Green Compacta(air plants) in different stages of flowering. Interesting the background has gone black & white. This image is posted elsewhere but thought it would fit nicely on this thread.

Oh Good Grief. I'm already a member of plantaholics. Just give me some time to regroup. Meanwhile, keep firing it up. But plants in Florida, SoCal, etc, just ain't fair to us erratic weather folks. BooHooHoooo.

Yeah, but you can grow a bunch of things that have to get cold in the winter, that we can't ... (even orchids... bet you could grow Cypripediums... which I can't...)

Way to try Roberta....the only benefit to the north is the people are nicer. Having been to Santa Barbara a lot, that does not apply there as that is heaven and no one has any reason to bitch lol

As I wore a long sleeve shirt tonight due to the temp plummeting into the 60s, I am probably just in shock from the cold
