Free plants! All these plants came from one original plant! Bromeliads are great for this because they naturally produce "pups" and you just break them off at the base and put the new pup in potting soil and you have a new plant!
I've also had huge success with jade plants by clipping off a piece and putting it in potting soil. I do this regularly, and I've found they come in very handy as gifts for house warming presents or get well soon gifts or any occasion. This is the ultimate in thrifty fun! You can get clippings from neighbors' plants and do trades, too. Most people are happy to share, just ask and then offer some from your own garden/yard.
