Unusual Aechmea Fasciata Bromeliad

This arrangement with both an Orchid and a Bromeliad really looks great.  The pink bromeliad is an Aechmea Fasciata, which you do not see much of anymore.  They used to be popular, but they had spines on the edges of the bracts, and it was easy to get cut when caring for the plant and they went out of style.  Now this new variation is spineless, making them easy to handle.  Don't be surprised if they come back in style again, especially with this improvement.  Adding fullness to the the arrangement is a Neanthe Bella Palm.

Indoor tropical plants actng as a wall or screen


These tropical plants act as a live movable barrier for this meeting room.  What a great way to divide this room.  The plants are easy to move to reconfigure the room.

Succulents at Pier 39 in San Francisco

Succulents love the coastal sea breeze and what a great use of succulents to decorate this crab statue in front of Pier 39.   There is no better place to eat fresh crab, clam chowder, and sourdough bread!
