I love air plants but I have not been able to grow them. Maybe I’ll try again…. thanks for reminding me.
I had a really hard time up north trying to keep them alive. I bought 10 while I was on vacation here one time and took them home with me. Despite my best efforts I watched them dry up and die one by one 😦 But, my sister can get them to live up there so there is hope!
beautiful, what is an air plant ? does it have to do with air planes?
🙂 In some ways I imagine… they are called epiphytes.
From wiki: An epiphyte is a plant that grows upon another plant (such as a tree) non-parasitically or sometimes upon some other object (such as a building or a telegraph wire), derives its moisture and nutrients from the air and rain and sometimes from debris accumulating around it. Epiphytes are usually found in the temperate zone (e.g., many mosses, liverworts, lichens and algae) or in the tropics (e.g., many ferns, cacti, orchids, and bromeliads).
Wiki always says it better ;D
aah, thaanks for the info. when i searched Wiki this is what I got : An airplane (also known as an aeroplane in British English or simply a plane) is a powered fixed-wing aircraft that is propelled forward by thrust from a jet engine
Yeah, that would be misleading 🙂 LOL!!
Beautiful! So they’re related to orchids then I suppose? Wonder if they would grow in my neck of the woods!
Probably. Usually you can find them online for sale if there aren’t any locally, it’s worth a try.
Am going to ask at my local nursery! Thanks!
