Default New Viv

Hey all,

Just finished putting this together, wondered if anyone had any suggestions for improvements. Thanks!

Looks good. Only suggestion would be to fill in the background.

Question for you, is the white flower an orchid? I saw something that looked like that and was an orchid at Home Depot. If it is, what did you use to hold it up, because HD had it on some pole?

Thanks

I would plant something that would climb the cork like a phil or pothos or anything viney. What lights do you have?

I'll probably put a dark backing on. I don't really want to use anything on the inside, as it's only a 20 high, and so not a very deep tank. Yes, the white flower is an orchid that I bought cheap at the local grocery store. There's a rubber band holding the plant itself on under all that sphagnum. The flower stalk is fairly rigid and doen't really try to trail very much, but it's also supporting itself a little by leaning on the side.

As for the cork, yah, it is a little bare. I'm hoping that little fern tacked on will eventually spread downwards and cover it nicely.

I borrowed the light from my leuc tank to take the picture...it's a 36W power compact. I've got a 65W power compact in the mail that will probably go on the new tank...we'll see :-). Thanks for the replies!

I drilled holes in the wood, and simply shoved the broms right in :-). They are also wedged in with sphagnum for extra stability and moisture retention.

Sorry to take so long to answer...went home for the weekend :-). No, I have not tried it before, but it's been set up for a couple weeks now and the plants are doing fine.

OK, thanks for the info. I'll be trying it when I get my new tank setup. By the way, you got any updated pix?

moonracerdave, that is how I mount all my broms to cork, just drill a hole and stick them right in. Sometimes I have to use hot glue to keep them stable, but it works very good, as long as your bromeliads is an epiphyte.

Tank hasn't really changed much yet...but if you want to see its new inhabitants, go to the "New Pumilio!" thread (http://www.dendroboard.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=5542). Just a little shameless self-promotion...:-)
