Tillandsia beginner; need recommendations

ohmybloomers(7a)August 23, 2012

Greetings! I've been intrigued with tillandsia for a long time. I'd like to start with a few and see how I do with them. Do any of you have a recommendation on particular ones to start with, and best places to obtain them online?

I'm pretty good at following care instructions, so they wouldn't have to be absolute "beginner" plants. Some bloomers would be nice (given my user name, of course!).

Thanks!

Please keep the store suggestions coming! I've been wanting a replacement airplant since my last etsy-ordered one died within a week of arrival.
