It was my 23rd birthday yesterday and my bf went with me to Parkway Gardens. I ended up with my first air plant and a very interesting Begonia.
The above Tillandsia was $2.99 and is the first air plant I've ever purchased. I've always wanted one or two (thousand) but they're usually sold glued to rocks or some other awful trinket for 10X what a reasonable price would be. Fortunately I finally found one available by itself. The species wasn't labelled but I think it's a Tillandsia fuchsii. Any thoughts?
The begonia I ended up is one that I would never have wanted if I just saw it online. However, there is something charming about this strange begonia and how it seems to almost have a crook-stem trunk. The variety name is Begonia 'Boomer'.
Also saw my first Cordyline australis flower and this lovely Hibiscus.
