For the next week or so, posts may be a little on the short side. Work is hectic and some travel is involved, so blogging time will be limited. Plus I need to slow down a bit, relax.

Like a Tillandsia soaking in a tub, I will enjoy the end of summer, letting stresses float away.


This actually is the way that I give my three air plants their weekly soaking: in my walkway water feature!

They seem to enjoy it, spending an hour or two out there, goldfish tickling their anchor roots. (Sometimes they spend the night out there when I forget to bring them in!)

The bigger of these three I purchased late last winter. The other two smaller ones were gifts received at this summer's Garden Bloggers Fling. I believe they were provided by Little Prince of Oregon if I remember correctly.

I learned an interesting fact that night at the Fling banquet: even experienced, talented gardeners have plants that they just can't keep alive.

I wonder if your Fling Tillandsia are still living? You know who you are. :)

Relaxing is good! I think your little Tillandsia looks so happy taking there weekly soak. I came home with 3 little Tillandsia friends. They are all happy as can be in my kitchen window. I already had several and they like the morning light there. When I am running the a/c 24/7 I mist them at least every other day with rainwater. I have never tried soaking them. I found a set of little pots that I filled with orchid mix and just set them on top. The other I have are hanging in glass containers. I have meant to do blog about it but...
