Cory Diary : Picking up new hobby - Air Plant

When we are planning for retirement, one of the thing we have in mind is what we are going to do with the rest of our time after, as managing our portfolio do not really takes much time. Well, we could continue to work till we can't but it will be wiser if we can try out what it is like. One of the first thing I did is to move to a more peaceful location further out from the central. Life is certainly much quieter.


Air Plants below Aquarium Lighting

Coincidentally last week, I was in the flower market. In the back of my mind I have a rough idea of looking for less messy plants to keep. And to my surprise they have Air Plants and there are quite a number of stores selling them. Fortunately, a number of the plants have already started to flower. This is quite amazing because this plants usually flowered only once in their life time. Maybe a year for some. And it it could last for only a few days.

Flowering Air Plant


This Air Plant do not need soils to survive. We just have to water them once a week or two. Think i could dip them into my fish tank so the best place is to be under my aquarium tank lighting. Right now is testing phase for me. Each of them cost about $5 - $6 locally. There aren't many colors.

I get a few of them and they started to flower past few days. Just read that I have to be the one to do the pollination unless we want to get the bees to come in.  Let's see how it goes.
