I would like to start a collection of Tillandsias or better known as air plants. Would anyone have some for sale or know of a vivero that has them?

My tree climbing days may be over.  Are there any low enough to reach? I have been to two viveros locally with no luck. I will try the ones to the West.

I have never seen airplants in the viveros here but I never looked for them , There were lots on some fruit trees I had but I cut them down and replanted other s so no air plants although I see a lot of them on the electric lines. Too high and too hot for me...

Thanks for letting me know.  I've been to 5 local nurseries with no luck. I'll try the Cactus viveros.

Found them in online nurseries, but ship US and Canada only. No international shipping and I  wouldn't trust USPS to deliver before they died anyways.  I'm not sure live plants can cross the border.  Maybe I can find some baby bromeliads to put in the baskets I collected or onto the wall mounts I expected to use.

Anyone know where the orchid nursery Is? I know they can be mounted.  I am disappointed.

I'll have another glass of wine or go straight to the vodka. Drown my sorrows so they say.

Almost all the Viveros have them, just don’t water them or they will rot

Not true. They like to be misted in dry weather. I have a bunch of bromeliads in a tree and they certainly don't rot in the long humid rainy season where I live in Sayulita.
