The great love affair…

Before and After

Now Tillandsias are pretty amazing in my book, but they are most definitely not the fastest growing plants around, which is why I like to take pictures of my plants every so often.  At least that way I can compare how the plants are doing now to when I first got them, and it is actually really nice to realise that yes, they are actually growing well and looking happy.  Well since I enjoy looking at these so-called before and after shots, I thought I would share some with everyone too.  Thanks for stopping by people and happy growing!

      Thanks for the kind words. Be prepared though, because once you start with Tills it is hard to stop! 😀

    Thanks for the great posts! I have been collecting Tillies for just one month and I already have about 65 plants….I am now the crazy plant lady! It’s nice to see how big different species will grow, and so exciting to see the color changes they perfom. They are such fun to learn about – I think I am addicted for life!

      Hi Britt, the first few months of catching the Tilly bug is great fun! The sheer number of amazing plants and information you can find on the internet is just mind-boggling. Welcome to the world of Tilly addicts. Don’t worry, you are in great company!

    These photos are truly an inspiration! I’ve just caught the Tilly bug, I’m 2 weeks and 20 small Tilly’s into it. I would love any advice for an indoor Tilly grower. They are just so adorable, I’m in love!
