Thanks to everyone who stopped by yesterday and gave me a *like* – really kind. The need for affirmation is quite high so I’m very grateful.
Thought I should post the final piece with the dreaded pot plant.
Not only was the pot a big block of earthenware, the plant was a crazy bromeliad looking specimen with its strap like leaves arranged like early morning bed hair.
Basically I had no idea where to start – so just stuck with the programme. May have made the pot look slightly more glassy than it actually is.
Amazingly I found other bloggers who do everything Bromeliad related including –
- organising the World Bromeliad Conference last year http://theartofbromeliads.wordpress.com/
- giving advice on how to look after bromeliads http://bromeliadplant.wordpress.com/
- taking nice photographs of bromeliads while watching for spines http://nixwickedgarden.wordpress.com/tag/collecting-bromeliads/
Quite sure this plant is not going to win any prizes for beauty! Now I hope someone will let me know if this is in fact a bromeliad, which, by the way, originates from North America – and not (as I thought) from Queensland …
