Baby Bullet-head Bromeliad, 2011
Approx 18 " tall
Flower Approx 2" diameter

Baby Bullet-head flower, armed and ready to protect itself if need be. You can put this outdoors but keep in mind that plastic (the orange part of this flower) can and will fade in direct sunlight. Many Bromeliads are able to store water in a structure formed by their tightly overlapping leaf base. This particular genus is unusual in that it is instead capable of controlling water flow to outside sources. Varying in color, size and shape, these Bromeliads are perfect for most indoor or outdoor settings.

I have painted the stem with a rust converter which can help protect against rust for awhile, over time rust will come back but you can apply poly on it or more converter.

Frequently asked questions about IndustrialBloom

I am happy to work with you on a flower arrangement. It can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months depending on how many flowers you want and how involved you want to be in the process.
My work is made from salvaged junk. Most of it is already rusty and shouldn't really be put outside unless you are prepared for more rust to develop (which many people don't mind) I varnish the stems and heads (but not always). If you notice rust you can always lightly sand and re-varnish via spray or brush. I don't advise keeping the flowers outside in harsh weather (winter/freezing/blazing hot etc) as that can destroy them over time both cosmetically and physically. If you want them to last for years and years I advise a covered porch/patio or indoors.
