Bromeliad Tillandsia ionantha of at least 12 plants. 
They make ball like colonies when hung like a wind chime.

 Medium + size has 2 to 3 plants more than med. size. Approximately 4 - 5 inches across, size is determined by number of plants rather than inches of ball. Inches of ball will vary depending on age of plants from new offsets growing to mature blooming size. These Exotic Tropical Plants are an Easy care plant that grows well most any where. First photo is of one larger than auction item consisting over 25 plants, bigger than a softball. Tropical Air Plant Small Starter Hanging Ball for this auction is like the next five photos of the plants with blue background. There are at least (12 plants) in this ball which in a year or so could easily double. Plants may be green, beginning to blush or in blush bloom depending on development and time of the year. Main bloom during winter November - January/February.

Last photo shows T. Ball in Bloom.

Will be shipped with hanging hook attached ready to be placed in a tree (warm climates) greenhouse, window or well lighted room. Misting often is great but also please thoroughly drench once or twice a week your Tillandsia like they would get from Florida rainstorm. Then be sure they are dried out before next soaking. This T. ionantha is one of the easiest to grow.

I am not responsible for plants or items lost, damaged or destroyed during shipping (including freezing or drying from cold or heat) by the post office or left outdoors after delivery.

If item is returned by P.O. or other carrier as unable to deliver you will need to pay new shipping to have item resent.

 Cold weather warning!!! If you are or will be in next two weeks having below freezing temperatures consider not placing order or be aware the shipping may result in Cold Damage or plant death.  Purchase HEAT Pack from Mad Happenings Store to be included when temp is in the 30s. Even with Heat Pack, the package can not be left outside after delivery. Temperature below 25 is too cold to ship, even with Heat Pack.

Plants shipped during cold weather without heat packs that suffer damage or die will not be replaced.

Hot weather warning!!! If you are or will be having temperatures above 90 degrees it may place plants at risk of Heat Damage which I am not responsible for and will NOT refund or replace if damaged.

Steps to take to lessen weather related risk; Do not let package remain outside after delivery. Have held at Post Office for you to pick up.

 I will work with you to accommodate reasonable request and resolve issues. 

I am a Fl. Dept. of Agriculture Certified Grower since 2008, plants are inspected.
My handling time ( 5 to 10 business days ) allows for shipping most items at beginning of week, weather conditions, the pulling plants from stock including offsite greenhouse which I visit usually only once a week.
Plants are prepared for shipping which includes for most a day of hydrating followed by a day to allow plants to dry. Plants like Tillandsia and Vanda orchids need to be completely dry prior to boxing. Shipping damp in a warm dark place increases chance for fungus to develop. Recommend you always do preventative treatment on any plant shipped and then water thoroughly to rehydrate. See care information from Mad Happenings and contact as soon as any concerns appear, waiting to see how plant does will not help.
