These are two types of cacti. They probably are not to be planted together.. But I thought it would be really cute in one of my grandmothers antique cups by the sink. They are to have medium-high light and not much water. They are the not prickily kind of cacti.
Sorry for the bluriness. I need to work on spending time taking my pictures. This is a bromeliad. I got it from Collier's Nursery on Old Rocky Ridge. They were SO helpful. I told them I wanted a plant, easy maintenance, and that didn't need much light (because we don't get much light downstairs). I also already had the pot, from Old Time Pottery, so they helped me get a plant that made all these requirements! This is it! I love the orange bloom. They said to let it fully dry out before watering it again. So I am patiently waiting... I don't want this one to die. The lady who helped me said that in about 6 months the bloom would die, but that another would sprout shortly after, in a different place.
For the last few weeks when I make my weekly Publix trip, I grab a bouquet of flowers. One of the $3.99 or $4.99 ones. I have had these daiseys almost 2 weeks. They came in a larger bouquet and these are the ones that have continued to last. I change the water out every few days and trim them.
Drew came home last night with a beautiful pink and green bouquet for me last night. He had to go to Target to pick up a prescription and we had been there the day before and he remembered that I had commented on this bouquet. I had a few of the flowers from my bouquet at Publix. I kept the green ones from that bouquet and added the ones he brought me last night. I LOVE greenery too, all the extra makes for a beautiful centerpiece!
Here are a few left over in a little bud vase in the powder room. All I do is spend max $4.99 a week and they spruce up my week and home!
