Tillandsia ericii, doesn't get any better.
Wonderful flower...It looks like it should smell like orange sherbet.
I'd say that a well grown Yellow Glow would beat it because it looks good pretty much all the time. I'm growing this one in an 8" pot and it sure attracts your attention.
Hi bromadams, than dyckia looks like it has been hit with herbicide? lol (only joking, it is a novel effect) it reminded me of many broms, that went the way of weed killer by mistake......
Yep like your Till gonza well grown.
Here is a novel image of a wild native koala which during the heat wave last spring-summer, while temps were in excess of 40+ oC wandered into a suburban house to escape the heat.
When offered a bowl of water, promptly climbed in & this image was taken.
LOL Allan that image has been round the world in emails atleast 50 times. Cute lil guy
