bromeliad

  1. Parts & Construction
    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...

    So yesterday I had some time on my hands and decided to use an old used exo terra for a quick terrarium build. The goal was to use materials that I had lying around so I didn't need to buy any new materials for this build. I wanted to make it simple and quick so I didn't use any great stuff...

    I am planning to build a Peru biotope tank that houses 2 imitators. I have already found some nice ferns orchids and creepers that grow in Peru. But so far the only bromeliad that I found is the neoregelia tarapotensis. I wonder if you guys can help me find some more bromeliads that grow in...

    I finished planting my first production living wall model last night and wanted to share it here :). This is all a part of my green tech startup and my goal to bring something living to everyone's desk/work space. Miniature living walls don't really exist so I thought I'd create an easy way for...

    Hi everyone! I'm new to this forum, and this is my first post ever. I have just set up an exo terra 18x18x24 viv, and planted it today. First ever viv, so i'm a noob. I have one concern regarding one of my Neoregelia "Fireball". When i received it, it had some really nasty green stuff in...

    I have been trying to mount a Bromeliad using tooth picks until the roots take hold but with the awkward shape I'm running into trouble. I plan on using super glue/krazy glue to hold it in place until the roots take hold. Since I have never done this before I was wondering how long this takes...

    Hi there! I work for my grandfather as his horticulturist/tank installer/ consultant/ (insert whatever odd job here) and just wanted to post some pictures of the 8 foot background on the terrestrial level. I took it using a panoramic feature on my phone, so sorry if a few places look choppy or...

    Gah! I am fed up with this! I can't seem to keep much plant life alive in my tank. I've tried so many different orchids, four different vine-plants, four venus flytraps, and all sorts of miscellaneous things that are supposed to be easy to keep alive. Not working. All that's alive are two Home...

    Geeeeez, I'm seeing lots of threads about people having problems with their bromeliads! I didnt notice threads like that before but it seems like theres a sudden burst of them. I'm planning on loading my tank up with broms when I'm done building it. I have a wish list on tropicalplantz.com that...
