    Hello I am setting up a few terrariums for dart frogs and I would like your opinions of plants and other fixtures (sticks/logs/rocks/shelves/backgrounds etc). I am new at building tank setups - this one you see first below will house Ranitomeya Fantastica "True Nominals". The skeleton of the...

    Hi all, I recently acquired a vrisea hieroglyphica that I mounted with some spaghnum moss on a cork bark. I read that the leaves should always be filled with water so I did just that. After ~ 2 weeks it started to turn brown as if its rotting, but the roots are still firm. Any tips on how to...

    Hello, I have recently been encountering a black spot that has spread to several of my broms in one vivarium. I had a large noeregelia that ended up just straight up not wanting to continue and it ended up turning brown and dying. Currently my aechmea has the black spots and is getting more dead...

    I wanted to get a larger bromeliad for my breeding R. imitator “Tarapoto” pair to deposit their tadpoles in, & bought a Neo punctatissima rubra x Hannibal brom for them. It’s big & beautiful, but HOLY cow this thing looks like it could do some damage. Could I trim the spikes with a sharp pair...

    I had a message about this in another discussion, but I figured I might post it here to get some more responses. So, sorry if you’re seeing this twice. this is the bromeliad I want to ID, the picture was from a YouTube video by Joshua Turner. In the video he says he doesn’t think it’s a...

    I was curious to know if cutting bromeliad flowers would be bad for them. I am planning to put some that will be close to the lid, and if they flower there will not be enough room. I’ve even heard that some plants can knock the lids of the tanks if they are too overgrown. So, if they flower...

    Hello, Chiquita Linda was one of the small neorgelias that I was planning on getting for my tank. In the pictures, it looks mostly green. However, I have seen a few pictures of them with some nice pinks and oranges. When good lighting is provided, what can these guys look like? If anyone has any...

    I have been getting a lot of mixed info on all of the lighting stuff, but the main goal is to get some nice color on some small neorgelia species. The color doesn’t have to be a ton, only enought to get some basic reds and purples. Here is a light that I was looking at, it would be in a fixture...

    I'm slowly working on creating my newest build. I bought a 18x18x36 ZooMed Skyscraper tank, Mistking starter setup, and Spectral Designs LED fixture. I want to make bromeliads and misc tropicals the focus of this setup. My biggest challenge is that I really don't want a 3D background into this...

    I wasn't able to find if this had ever been shown specifically not to work, but I don't think I've seen anyone post about it. I put a cutting of Philo. scandens in an old, very large hardware store-bought bromeliad several days ago, and I was surprised to find that it hasn't withered yet. I...

    Hey guys i'm researching a greenhouse to grow some orchids, bromeliads, and other vivarium plants in. I live in southern California (about an hour north of Andy's orchids). The area I want to put it in has a wall on the south side directly touching the greenhouse, there will also be structures...

    I saw these broms at the Madrid Botanical Gardens and was blown away. I tried looking at the tag, but there wasn't anything written down. I think it might be a variant of Billbergia, but I thought you all might have a better idea!

    My vents spend most of their time in their broms, so most of their poop accumulates in the cups. I flood them every few weeks, but it still doesn't get rid of all the poop. I've even noticed sometimes that when I spray water into the cups, a not so nice smell emanates from the brom for a few...

    Hello all! This will be my second ever vivarium and this time around the tank is a DIY custom. I've made frag tanks before for saltwater, so it will not be my first attempt and putting an aquarium together. I ended up with a standard 20 gallon aquarium that was in rough shape and had the bottom...
