This last winter I spent a lot of time in the basement with my plant prisoners. My desk is there and so I was writing on the book, while surrounded by plants spending the winter indoors; a nice arrangement. After returning from the NW Flower and Garden Festival in February I felt inspired by a couple of the City Living displays (the first two here) and decided to plant up a hanging container with some plants I'd accumulated.
There are cryptanthus...
And more tillandsia, T. usneoides to be exact.
If the container (it's a "evenslice" hexagonal pie plate) looks familiar it's because I first used it as a hanging planter back in 2016 (here). That version was fun, but I think I like this one better.
There is one problem though. The first round of plants were just sitting in the pie plate, these are actually planted in it—with soil—yet I didn't make any drainage holes. What was I thinking? Yikes. We don't get summer rain, but spring can be wet. I'm going to have to be careful.
Otherwise I'm calling it a success and I can't wait to take it outdoors...
