Tillandsia cyanea Blossoms

Tillandseas first put on pink quills in July, with a first bloom in September. I was pleasantly surprised to find blossoms this morning.



Pink Quills last a long time, the blue blooms are sporadic and short-lived. 

I'm impatient for my other Bromeliad that grows quills to have new spathes. I don't know how long it takes the quill form Vriesea to bloom from a pup. With Bromeliads, there is always something to watch or watch for. 

Cooler weather is coming.

Christmas Cactuses with Baby Teeth

That's what emerging buds on Schlumbergera look like to me, baby teeth.


Some of the red cacti have buds bigger than baby teeth.


... and some show no signs of buds. Some will be open at Thanksgiving and some may not be ready at Christmas.
