Tim’s Tillandsias and Lithops

Yesterday I blogged about Tim’s rad butterfly world, but check out his sweet deck greenhouse of Tillandsia insanity!

Not sure what this guy is, but it’s popping a flower.

The butt cheeks of the plant world: Lithops. They’re fun, but don’t water them until they really look like they need it.

Lithops are relatively easy to start from seed. There’s some good info here about going about it along with cool pics of all kinds of crazy succulents in baby stages if you click around.

Mesa Garden in Arizona can hook you up with all the succulent seeds you’ve been wanting, including Lithops. They also have live plants that I never knew existed.

    Such a beautiful display!
    … Just wanted to add that the one you weren’t sure of which is blooming is a Xerographica tillandsia. A really big beauty, too. One of my favourites!
    Lovely post and terrific photos!

    Wowza, I must be an idiot because I managed to kill not 1 but 3 lithops.

    1. Never ever water them, and then when you think you need to water them don’t. I’ve killed them, too…
