Tillandsia and Seeds = death ?
I've had a slight "obsession" observing the large wild growing Tillandsia (of some sort I assume) growing in the live Oaks at my daughter's school all year. They look somewhat like Tillandsia Utriculata (sp) from what quick research I did.
I noticed a few weeks ago that they all seemed to be dying off. I had assumed it was lack of rain (it's been severely dry here), but then upon closer inspection I noticed that they all seemed to have sent up bloom spikes.
So... is this normal Tillandsia behavior, send up a bloom spike then die ? Or just coincidence ?
I'd love to know more about this if anyone wishes to educate me.
