Often plants are the centerpieces in the rooms they reside in, and they need to provide a good amount of light to make this happen. When you give the plant their usual nutrition and “time to work it out” of a red hibiscus, a fine pink quill-flowered bromeliad (Tillandsia cyanea) can seem a little redundant, since you’re only giving it light to shine and fruit on light.
It also goes without saying that you’ll find more fruits on bare trees and bushes than you will on a bare woody soil.
However, consider this: The little cultivated pink quill plant, thus painted with highly colorful light, provides flowers 24 hours a day seven days a week for most of the year. By comparison, most trees and shrubs will only give you three to four hours of bloom. But if you can’t add the little nurtured blossoms to your daily light intake, you’re making it difficult for them to compete against the rest of the plants in your garden.
Quills are not only considered bright, but also used in many different cultural styles. Topsy-turvy, of course, is just one type of quill quills’ visual antecedent. They were a common pigment for most folk arts, but were eventually replaced by the paint finish which is found in many Native American and Colonial depictions of quills.
Quills are also used as a carpeting material. Adding a few strong weighty ones on freshly mown lawns is the way to go, and you might even succeed in growing a few quills even on a similarly sized lawn.
Here are a few easy, colorful, and ornamental steps for You to follow that will go a long way in improving the propagation of your quill plants.
