My Leucs are getting a new home. I think they'll be really happy with their new viv. Can't wait to see how it's going to look in about 6 months.

That's nice work man.... How come you didnt mount the broms on the wood instead of the substrate?

Thanks. The broms aren't planted in the substrate. It's just a trick to look that way. They are siliconed to the backs of pieces of cork and then I put some dry moss around the broms' bottoms to keep in moisture and conceal any silicone.

Baba, in case you're wondering how I terrace the viv, I use cork bark sections like retaining walls to create the levels. This way I don't have to worry about the substrate sliding forward and leveling out. The bark looks good and even looks more realistic when the moss begins to grow on it. All my vivs are terraced. It uses up more space, but I really like the depth it gives the tank. Unfortunately, photos can't show the 3-D effect that's why I showed a side view.

This is actually a BAD thing. You never wanna trap moisture around the base of an epiphytic type of bromeliad.

I'm not talking about keeping the base soaking wet, just enough to be really humid. I've been doing this for about 5 years and haven't had any problems with the broms. They flower and shoot out pups just like they should.
