Silver Tills in pots ??
Hi everyone, especially gonzer and any other Tillmeisters about.
I've had this (another) bee in my bonnet about growing some of the silver Tills in pots after seeing an absolutely stunning, irridescently white/silver/fluffy/perfectly symetrical but still dis-arranged T. tectorum grown that way at a local show, and a similarly brilliant T. ehlersiana (I think) at a show reported in these threads.
I have a T. tectorum and a T. ehlersiana that I'm just about to glue to a chunk of quartz or something else impervious and stick upright in a pot full of volcanic scoria, and I'm fairly comfortable with that, but tonight I came home with my weekly winter-night ration of eBay Tills to mount up, and one of them is a big T. seleriana that is just an absolute beauty. It is almost symetrical and would look just fantastic next to the upright T. ehlersiana and T. tectorum, but I just have to ask, does T. seleriana grow OK upright, or does it fill up with water and rot?
I'd hate to loose such a seriously nice plant, but I really really really want to stick it in a pot. All counselling would be greatly appreciated.
