    A little over a year ago I googled air plants in Canada and found a little flower shop probably 3 min. from where I live. This is the first one I bought. It was a small plant for $9.00. It was hard not to go down there every day.

    Cool. I have a number of tillies, but none of the bulbous species like this. They grow so well with the orchids, though in my conditions they tend not to bloom quite as often.

    It is strange, but very appealing. Perhaps it's a Triffid!

    This one I bought already close to flowering. It is T. caput medusae. After it grew pups (I think that's what they are called).

    I only know what they are because bulbous ones are quite different.
