I mentioned putting an air plant in my viv in one of my threads and someone said that it would die due to the high humidity. But what do i know im a beginner.

the only thing you would have to worry about in an airplant is if it is constantly wet which it then quickly rots away

I have had a few air plants in my vivs for almost a year now and they are doing fine, even spreading. Just make sure they are not directly affected by the misting.

OK for all the other plants in the viv, but not good for the air plants. There is plenty of humidity in the viv that you don't need to mist the air plants. When there is that much humidity in the viv, they are not going to dry properly if they are directly misted.

Very nice


Pull that orchid outta the subtrate tho... itll rot


Mount it on the background where itll get a lotta light but not stay damp.


Looks like a Masdevalia, Dracula or Pluerrothallis ... am I right ?

No that airplant prolly wont do well in there... the Tillandsia is wut we are reffering to.

Tho i believe the Exo terras have a vent on the lid so it may do ok
