Most are larger than that, but some are cotton ball sized. Argentea Thin Leaf is about the size of a cotton ball with long thin...leaves. If you're looking for full grown specimens I might be able to make that happen. The greenhouse will sometimes sell me mother plants.

Thanks, Han! I'll have a tracking number for you a little later.

By the way, for all you tilly fans out there, if there are any that you've been looking for, just shoot me a PM. I can get a LOT more types than are posted here, these are just the ones I've already got in stock. Turnaround time on a special order will only be a couple of days if the grower has the type you're looking for. I'm about half an hour from one of the largest tillandsia growers in the country.

hydrophyte I have been watering my orchids, houseplants and Tillandsia for years with RO water and rainwater and I've never had any problems with nutrients being depleted.

Thats correct. That's why I water with tap water 20% of the time.

tekkguy Thinking if I attached these to the wood sticking out of the bowl, it would need to be velcro or twine, so they could be removed for watering. Just gotta get the bowl set up to figure that one out!
