    I wonder if it is your humid climate compared to my dry climate, Never had particular sticky with those double Petunias I grew last year.

    I'm going to be checking this and past threads for a shopping list I think! Going to be creating a 'jungle' garden so need a lot of inspiration.
    So far I've only cleared the area and thought about pathways

          I have had this Tillandsia for 5 years and this is flowering from the offset which I left on the original plant. It stays in the greenhouse and has along with the T usneoides taken 2/3 c.Itillandsia.JPG
