    This Bromeliad has me stumped

    My mom gave this to me a few months ago. She had it at her work and it wasn't getting enough care. I had it inside for a while and it was doing okay but took up t so I had to move it outside. One day I noticed it had brown patches all over the leaves so I thought it was too hot. Moved it into a...

    Saw this guy the other day on a bromeliad leaf in Weimar, Texas

    Wondered for a second if he was exotic, but found out it is (I think) a green tree frog, a local. It's back was kind sticky. Thought it looked pretty cool with the white stripe, maybe part of a duet??

    North Carolina State Fair

    I go to the NC State Fair every year to eat tasty but terrible fair food and to see the plant displays. This year was pretty cool, nothing particularly special but I figured I would share it with you guys. A venus flytrap-esque salad grabber! IMG_3425 by mcmcnair The ferns that were on display...

    Some new Nepenthes, et al.

    I received a nice shipment of Nepenthes and a few epiphytes today. :boogie: I was very pleased, the plants were packed in huge plugs of live sphagnum, so they should pretty much start growing immediately. In 6 months I will be able to offer up some competition in POTM. N. sanguinea: N...

    Catopsis for trade

    I just divided my extremely overgrown Catopsis berteroniana and I don't really have space for all of them. If anyone is interested let me know. Right now all I'm really interested in are lowland neps, Sarracenia, and petiolaris complex sundews. Edit: After some close examinations and strong...

    My moss is your gain! (Giveaway)

    Not much to say here, I accidentally ordered way too much Spanish Moss online and need to get rid of a lot of it. If you want some, post here. Spanish Moss (Tillandsia usneoides) is a subtropical bromeliad, closely related to the air plants you see in the store. It's not a real moss, nor a...

    Genus ID for a brom?

    I won a houseplant giveaway from a blog that I read and one of the plants that the lady sent was this bromeliad. Since it doesn't have an inflorescence, I'm guessing that it would be difficult to identify the species, but could anyone at least tell me the genus? <a...

    Cultivation tips for different Utricularia sp.

    Hi all and sorry for the long post! I just figured it would be better to ask 1 big question and introduce myself at the same time than flooding the forum with 23 identical questions :) I hope you can bare with me! See I've got a big problem. Until recently I was happily...

    I have a small Bromeliad, not sure of the species, but it has a nice red center, and is a nice looking plant. I also have a Ponytail Palm Bonsai available. Shipping on the bonsai is $15, and shipping on the bromeliad is $15, but if you were to take both, it would only be $20. Post if you want...
