Last week I soaked my tillandsia, and this one, which is a fairly new purchase, happened to come with a piece of Tillandsia usneoides attached to the base.
I didn't really think much of it until that bit separated during the sink soak...
...and I noticed a tiny little tillandsia attached to it...
Here's a better photo of the tiny plant.
It's the size of Lincoln's face.
I decided it would be interesting to photograph with my iPhone magnifying attachment. Those are the filaments that attach it to the Tillandsia usneoides.
And in this photo you can see scales on the small tillandsia itself. Pretty cool!
So that's my smallest plant, what's yours?
