The display section had some very nice specimens.
I don't know why but succulent growers always have the coolest pots!
These warty balls were my favorite though. That is some freaky stuff! And I love that the name of the plant is Mammillaria bocasana 'Fred'. Fred's warty balls. (Tee-hee!) Geesh, I can be so juvenile! And I should really keep in mind that my mom reads this blog.
Anyway, onto the sale part of the show. There were tables and tables of little pots of cuties.
Here is what I ended up taking home:
Succulents are (from left to right):
Kalanchoe synsepala dissectum
Bromiliads are (from top left down ending at bottom right):
Tillandsia fasciculata x ionantha
Tillandsia tenuifolia 'Amethyst'
Oh, and this one - Neoreglia hybrid.
Those Tillandsias I'm going to try growing on some palm trunks I've had in my garden for years and never know what to do with.
I also picked up this book, The History of Succulents by Gordon Douglas Rowley, which looks pretty interesting.
I was sold as soon as I saw the photo of this guy. Doesn't he look like some cooky neighbor that likes to garden naked, handing out divisions of his succulents to neighbors, whether they want them or not. Actually, he looks like his name could be Fred...
