Moss and I are home

Rather than potentially deal with Airport security and to free up luggage space i just shipped the moss home. It arrived Monday. I'll add pics later.

I have rather a lot. If you want some you can PM me about picking up at my house in the Bronx or at my work in Williamsburg. Maybe some kind soul with a car will pick up for a bunch of people, but I leave that up to you. These are absolutely free, first come first served.

If you want them shipped now is the time to PM me with info. Flat rate small box shipping is $5.35.

Full disclaimer! I am not an experienced shipper of anything. I plan to send these in plastic bags with some humidity, maybe wrapped in damp newspaper. In Austin these do survive some freezing nights, so I'm not too worried about them dying, but then I'm not too sure of the best way to keep these anyway. So no guarantees.

Pics!

Random assortment


All of them...




Small one on branch


Same one after being dipped in water

They go bright green!

I plan on bringing back as much as I can find, within reason, and giving them away to people on the forum. I won't refuse payment, if anyone insists, but as they're completely free to me, and I've gotten a number of free things from people on the forum, I was going for a pay it forward kinda thing.

aokashi Id love to steal one off you! oO wouldnt know how to induce airflow though XD so I guess I'll be experimenting as well :3

chibikaie Oh, wow! Those look really interesting. I'd like to give one to my mom, as she's really into plants. May I? I'll have to figure out a good setup for it. Perhaps perched on driftwood in a large clear container, watered a couple times a week from the fish tank ...

Rob in Puyallup They are fun plants, related to pineapples, a member of the bromeliad family. Great companions to many orchids.

I'd love a couple if you come back with enough!

(I collected some in Florida about 10 years ago. Had some "red bugs" (a Floridian name, perhaps), that needed to be rinsed off.)

Sorry, no, it's a flowering plant, not a fungus. They like humidity, indirect sun, which is still pretty high light and I've read they like air movement, which can be a pain in a cage if you want to keep up the humidity, but I'll have enough to experiment with.
