Xerigraphica are like octopus plants with their mass of curled and twisting leaves. The leaves expand and contract, too, reacting to the light and water conditions, and is a subtle pleasure to experience while holding one in your hand under a flow of water. Or better yet, in the rain!
They only bloom after they mature, and after blooming, usually will form a pup, which is a new plant. I’ve seen clusters of these plants bigger than me. Yowser!
I have four of these beauties in full bud for sale for $30 each, so if you are in the Memphis area, give me a call soon to come get one, they won’t last long. Peace, love, and all good things to us all.
This is the first post on my newly revamped website. Thanks, Rod Kirby, for your patience and diligent help in getting me up and running in time for Mom Shopping!
Mom like birds? This secret moss bowl, with a magpie on top, and a little red hen inside, nestled in a bed of soft, growing moss, may be just the ticket at $45.
Or something a little more dazzling? This ten inch tulip vase is more than a year old, with a beautiful espicia that blooms under very low light conditions. Little Dorothy is filled with crystals, geodes, and more to form an impish wonderland, and will grow to fill this container in a year or so if not kept trimmed. $125
Or, best of all, book an afternoon Build a Terry party for mom and a crew to get their hands in the dirt and make their own living art to enjoy for years to come. Pricing for parties vary based on materials chosen for customizing, but basic 8 inch bowl and three basic plants is $75 per person, minimum of two and maximum of five people. Bring your own wine …

If you are in the Little Rock area this weekend, don’t miss the opportunity to meet a true character in the plant world, my friend Michael Seal, who has a large variety of tillandsias, commonly known as air plants, and other bromeliads for sale. He imports and grows these fascinating plants in southern Mississippi at his nursery, The Funny Farm. You can buy individual plants, or air plant arrangements on wood, stone, or even hanging air plant mobiles!
