Hechtia et al.

Thanks, but I get seed from the BSI seed fund - I have quite a few growing right now! As for the hardiness of Dyckia - some parts of Brazil get occasional frost, enough to kill coffee plants. Also, if any are highland plants this would also account for resistance to frost. I have noticed written aco...

Details

Actually I wnt to know all the details, because different people have different methods! The most successful growers of Dyckia that I know grow them in a rich soil and give them plenty of water.

mounting

I mount Tillandsia on either cork bark or on baldcypress (Taxodium) driftwood from the nearby swamps. To attach the plants I use a product called Liquid Nails, which is used for home repair. It seems nontoxic, I think it encourages root growth! When I saw Tillandsias in Florida (utriculata, fascicul...

Xeric bromeliads

I would like to hear from others about how they grow the xeric genera - Puya, Dyckia, Deuterocohnoia in particular.

Tillandsia bulbosa pupping

This species is not as quick to pup nor as prolific as some others, but I usually get at least 2 pups within a year from the bloom.
