Is that purplish/blue part of the bloom, or is it something different? Looks to be some type of bromeliad. It is beautiful!

That's a very unique and creative way to display your plants and I bet it is commented on a lot. Lovely arrangement ! mitzi

Thanks Mitzi and Riverrock! I catch people mostly looking for reptiles in the tank. heehee My brother snuck a baby lizard in the tank! I made him take it out lol.


Update:

Had to take out my Pachira 'cause the sun was burning its leaves (sun only shined on it. )

The color on the pink quill faded after its second bloom not sure why. Will have to read up on it.

Pitcher plant has grown two new leaves but no flower yet. At the moment bugs are eating its leaves instead of the plant eating flies.

Succulents and other plants are doing great. Succulents really love it in here they are growing real fast.

after using a storage bag as a terranium (http://my.gardenguides.com/forums/topic/32711 ) to grow seedling, I started to think.. everything else will work for growing seedlings and plants.

For now I'm hooked on fish tanks! I have four different size tanks now. The giant one and the little one (1 gallon) pictured here. a 10 & 3 gallon one. I bought these two for my girl beta fish but it just recently died. Anyway, tanks work great and are pretty to look at too!

So have you done anything with your tank yet cougar?

Rashell...almost
It is put up in the back of my hobby room and when I go in there I just look at it and think..hmmm I have alot of things to move to get to it. BUT, I will thats for sure. I'm thinking air plants? Also am thinking to keep most of the items that are in there. Keep it like a aquarium with all the little trinkets in it and put the plants around it. Oh me thinks I will paint a mural on the back of it too. Im such a mess! LOL
