Hi everyone.

Here's the latest pic of my (supposed) Alc 'Silver Plum'; it's a bit special as I grew it from a very small hair pup.

I say (supposed) 'Silver Plum' because I've read conflicting reports where some say they don't produce pups (either normal or hair pups) while others say they do. The chap who gave me mine said it was a hair pup from his 'Silver Plum'.

Any ideas on whether this is the real deal or a 'Silver Plum' "look alike"? What ever it is I like it.

All the best, Nev.

It looks like a Silver Plum and I suppose anything is possible as far as the pup.
I have reposted the last pic Nev.

Hi everyone.

As you all know by now, Neoregelias are my favourite bromeliads, however I do have a limited mixed collection of other genera and just for a change of pace I thought I'd post a few pic's of some of my recurvata types.

I dislike the vicious prickles on these plants, but continue to grow them because of the fact they are virtually "bullet proof" and seem to be able to handle anything Mother Nature throws at them.

Hi All. We have had some really warm weather in Durban this winter. Far to few cold days.

I Took some photos of my Tillandsia collection... They are really getting overgrown.

Hi everyone.

Conrad- What a fantastic display, simply wonderful!

I've never been a Tillandsia grower myself as my preference has always been Neo's, however like Sunshine, a few donated bits and pieces are gradually creeping into the shade house and are just hung on the wall and left to their own devices and are doing well despite any help from me. I only water them in extremely dry weather as Mother Nature seems to do the job adequately during other times as she provide regular dew and the occasional shower.

As I get old though and the bones ache more, I can see myself getting away from the heavier plants and more into something small like mini Neo's and perhaps Tillandsias as well as they seem more in keeping with something I can handle without to much effort, and pictures like you have posted are certainly pushing me in that direction. 

Thanks for sharing.

All the best, Nev.

Wow!!, looking great Conrad, will be a jungle soon. I am considering adding something similar but for neo&Arch in the main.

Real Nice, Jaga. Are the Vresias hybrids your own handy-work? Here in Durban we have not had any real winter as yet, One or two cold days does not quite make the winter and My fig trees are already pushing leaves. This has been for me the warmest winter I have ever had here.


Nev....are you still out there?


Best wishes,

Conrad

Yes Conrad, these crosses colour seems quite reasonable considering our winter has been very wet and cold + lots of hail. Just had several days starting around zero and having a max temp of 12. Which is Ok for Vrieseas but not so good for Neos & other genus. Have considerable leaf damage but as they say.............. 'Natural Selection'

Hi everyone - I had just about given up on this forum as nothing had been posted for about ten days which was disappointing as I thought at one stage it was starting to pick up again.

Just out of curiosity I've been looking in at the “original” Bromeliad Forum which is still a part of Garden Web, however things have changed and Garden Web now seems to have amalgamated with a site called “Houzz”.  

Initially I had some difficulty navigating my way around as it’s not as user friendly as this site, but pleasingly I found some of our original “brom friends” like HDD and Gonzer still posting and fortunately I’m told we are still able to access the old archives from when we used to have those wonderful long conversations. The thing is, although I won’t abandon this site, I will be visiting that one more often as it’s more active and seems to have new posts every day or so and is more like the old site used to be.  

Jaga - That's some nice colour you've managed to get there even though your weather has been crook; which brings me to our weather, and I can't remember ever having so much cold damage on my Neo's and Aechmeas, it's very demoralising and sometimes makes me wonder why I even bother anymore. Just when I thought I had things starting to look “ship shape” after a year’s neglect due to health problems, it seems I’m now right back to square one. If this is a sign of things to come with the changing weather patterns it’s certainly not something I’m looking forward to.

Conrad – Yes I’m still around, but decided to stop posting as no one seemed interested anymore and I seemed to be just talking to myself, and I can do that any time, Ha! Ha!

Even though I’ve never been a Tilly grower, I’m still drooling over your wonderful collection and wonder whether maybe I should have gone in that direction instead of a yard full of mainly Neo’s.

All the best, Nev.

Great  to hear from you Nev. I am checking out the "alternative site" Houzz now. But dont give up on this one. Unless the stats are very wrong, visits and views are still good. I think they are all just dumbfounded by the high quality of the plants both you and jaga are growing! All at a loss for words. I would hope some start chatting soon. It would be very welcome to have some new questions and problems to solve.
