Tillandsia in full bloom

I’ve been checking every day since I last posted. Morning and evening to see it’s progress.

Interesting to examine the different parts of the flower up close. Had to think back to grade 10 science class. Could only remember the stamen but in the end had to look up which parts were which (pistel white, stamen yellow)

Finally all 3 flowers were in bloom yesterday.

So glad I got to capture it in full glory

Today the blooms are already fading.

I was very sad to read that they only bloom once in their life-cycle! But I guess the good news is that it will start to make pups!! Really looking forward to that.
