Tillandsia usneoides Added to Bromeliad Tree

When I went to see how fall natives were faring in the meadows I gathered some Spanish Moss that was hanging low enough for me to reach from the Mule.

We don't have Spanish Moss in trees around the house and to the south. A mile closer to the creek it is plentiful. The Tillandsia usneoides I gathered in the spring and hung on the Stick House disappeared. I think birds may have gathered it to line their nexts. 

I haven't put it in the greenhouse before. I might festoon everything. There's a certain romantic look about it.

Are two kinds of Bromeliad better than one?

Oh, I love that! It looks great! And I love that you can just pop out to the creek and get some.
