      Air Plant Bloomed

      OK, this might not be exciting for some, but it takes years for these things to bloom. Over the last year several have had "babies". Within the span of a week, this one turned pink and shot up purple blooms for the first time.



      The plant above it, with the long curved spike, that's the way it blooms and creates seeds.

      You can see in the long curley legged plant below, at the very top if it, it is turning color and getting ready to bloom. Not near as spectacular though. It's taken it months to get to this point.

      I have no idea, LOL. But, the others have bloomed about once every other year.

      Cool! I never had one bloom either. Do you mist it at all or is it on its own?

      Congratulations on this plant blooming. Have never seen anything like it. Definitely interesting and love the coloring. Hope it comes back for you again. Definitely makes you wait, but truly think it's uniqueness is worth the wait.

      Thanks for sharing.
