spiny bromeliads and tillandsias

Over the last couple of months, I have been slowing amassing a collection of Tillandsias (also known as "air plants") and spiny bromeliads consisting mostly of Dyckias and Cryptanthus. Most of the latter were acquired from World Farm, which I understand, had taken over the entire collection from some guy who used to be very into these plants. The Tillandsias on the other hand were acquired mostly from elsewhere, with the latest lot from Chatuchak in Bangkok. The ease of care is probably the main reason why I like these plants. Also, their spiny form is highly dramatic and would look fantastic if incorporated appropriately into the garden-scape.
