Chris Neumann shared these incredible photos of his tillandsia (aka: air plant) collection.
Winter lasts too long, and looking at plant catalogs just doesn’t satisfy the gardening urge, so a year ago I bought a big terrarium and started filling it with orchids, ferns, and tillandsias (air plants). At the time, my wife’s friend said (spoken with her Ukrainian accent), “It is a good hobby for a husband to have.” A year and way too many tillandsias to fit in the terrarium later, I ran across another quote. “Tillandsias are the crack cocaine of bromeliad collecting.” Luckily you can always find some place to put just one more!
