I still can’t get over the fact that tillandsia grows in the shade trees of Austin, Texas. It is only March of 2008 and I have already learned more about tillandsia from observing it growing wild on these last few trips then I knew previously through years of experience growing them in my home. Proof-positive that I need to take more trips. For the learning!
Incidentally the tillandsia I saw in Austin is Tillandsia recurvata which is commonly called “ball moss” by locals.
