Q. Are they dangerous to pets?
A. They are not poison, and are totally safe for cats and dogs. On the other hand, your poor plant may not be safe around your cat or dog! I keep mine out of reach.
Q. Where can you buy them?
A. They sell them at greenhouses or garden centers. But not all have them, so you should call around first. I found them in two garden centers, they had them by the cash registers!
Q. How big do they grow and how fast?
A. There are literally hundreds of varieties, including Spanish Moss and Bromeliads! And they come in all sizes, from huge to tiny. I got tiny ones and don't think they will grow much. But they do have offshoot babies, called pups. When the baby gets half the size of the mother plant, you can snip it off and you have a new one.
A. All they need is plenty of air circulation, light, and you need to mist them good about twice a week. Then put them in the light to let them dry within four hours.
Q. Are they all this cheap?
A. there are lots of different sizes. Here, the tiniest ones are about fifty cents, then the price goes up with the size. You can get a decent medium size with big wide leaves for five dollars. I will get the bigger one if I can keep these little test ones alive.
