Question Where to get larger bromeliads?

Hey all,

As I'm starting my auratus build and, later on, my pumilio build, I wanted to know where everyone is getting these big beautiful broms. The tank I had initially set up for pumilio (a 20 long, no longer using this for obvious reasons) is packed full of broms, they're just all small (all bought from Josh's or Glass Box) except for one that I bought on Etsy. I'm going to reuse these plants in my 40 Breeder Auratus viv and my future, much taller, pumilio viv, but I also want some big bromeliads to fill in space and provide cover and rearing spots for the frogs. Where is the best place to get them?

I'm also looking for good tropical moss or other moss suggestions to cover vivarium backgrounds. I have plenty of Java moss and Riccia, but am looking for more suggestions and where to get them.

Thanks!

Rainforest Flora has some cool mini Neoregelia. Don’t get a larger Neoregelia for a terrarium <18” deep.

There’s some cool smaller Vriesa species too.

I’m growing some Quesnelia species in my tanks. Quesnelia marmorata Is really neat. Q. humilis as well.

Thanks for the advice! I guess I'm more looking for medium sized ones as the ones I do have now are very small. I'll check out Vriesea and Quesnelia!

I bought mine from ebay. Its usually pretty easy to tell the difference between a pup, juvenile, and mature brom by picture. Mine was a mature plant and came with a pup ready to cut. A lot of folks don't want this as some broms can die after they pup. Mine is still going strong and threw another pup a few weeks ago which is still maturing on the mother plant.

If you're in ontario I get large bromeliads from Metro grocery stores. They already have an inflorescence so i usually give em some time to push out pups and plant those.
