A couple of weeks ago I happened across a nursery in Tamarac, FL called Tropic Plants. I LOVE this place! I bought this air plant (a type of bromeliad, but I'm not exactly sure what kind). It was so unusual (to me!) and it had the added bonus that I thought it would be hard for me to kill it. Fast forward to today and we've got a beautiful blooming air plant. I want to give one to all my friends!
