ok i have a 20 gal tank with a false bottom and a pond. Should i plant the bromeliad in the soil or should i find a small pot to plant it in and bury that in the tank? Im worried that the roots will be too wet for the bromeliad. But shouldnt the false bottom provide enough drainage? Thanks for the help

I'd say it will be fine if the water level is low enough.I have had 2 bromiliads in my Costa Ricans tank for about 2.5 years without any problems.They are planted in the substrate.

One thing you could do to "lighten" the soil around it... is to hollow out the area you want to plant it, and put sphagnum moss in. I then just plant the bromeliad right in the sphagnum.

It's a bit more "airy" that way.

my waterfall has begun to leak and it drips on the roots of a broeliad and if anything it has done better.
