Beautiful. We all need to have such friends. :mrgreen:
Are you going to keep them in a glass house during winters?

Thank you
As I do not have green or glass house, so during winter season I will shift them in the kitchen near the window. I will update with the passage of time. Bromeliads die after blooming and produce new plants from the roots.

I was in search of good looking and reliable shelf supports for my new project but failed. With despair thoughts, have planned a visit to Sunday market two weeks back and found two sets . Actually the supports are used as wall mount stands for Televisions. Imagined the shelf style and bought two,as these are 2nd hand and offered for Rs:50 each.
