A correspondent from Plainville, Conn., says: " I send with this a plant by "mail for you to examine and name if you can. It is commonly called air plant. The leaves taken off and hung up in a room will root, and numbers of small plants will spring forth from the edges of the leaf. I have kept them for a year, but have had no flowers as yet; hardly think they flower."
[Nearly every month we get this thing to name from somebody. It is a plant no one can kill, and perhaps this is why it comes here so often.- Ed. G. M.]
