Thanks @janie !! I do appreciate that. I've always really loved your gardens. And I'm really sorry to hear you've lost your mojo because your gardens have brought joy to so many on here. The flood must have been so distressing. Xx

Thursday 18 May 2017 • I removed this Aechmea pup from the mother plant and planted it elsewhere in the garden. Pruning saw is for scale. #Aechmea #red #yellow #orange #tropical #bromeliad #subtropical #backgardenbc #Propagation-Aechmea #bromeliadblanchetiana

Massive! I've got loads of pups on my mother plant I keep meaning to remove. I'll have far to many for the house 😊
