Thanks for the quick response, but I'm assuming those methods only work for soft backgrounds, what if you have a 1" thick layer of cement as a background?I've yet to keep a bromeliad alive in a vivarium myself(mostly due to lack of circulationI think), but many people use toothpicks, pieces of paper clips, or fishing line to hold it to the background.
ok that sounds like a plan.Gorrila Glue works for me. I use a little spaghnum moss as the glue is setting to cover it so when its dry the moss covers the glue
that's for that bit of info, I didn't know that.Not sure if it makes much of a differenceforbroms, however you said Epiphyte not Lithophyte.
Lithophytes are plants that attach and grow on rock surfaces.
Epiphytes are plants that grow on wood/bark.
So that may be your problem.
its Quikrete Mortar over foam.Is it concrete over styrofoam or pure rock? should try to drill a small whole in the rock.
do you guys still have the old "grey' formulation in Florida? The reason i ask is that they banned an ingredients in the grey formula a few years back, in some states, and never had much luck with the new "white" stuff.I use Liquid Nail on my outdoor mounts. I do not know how it would do indoors, I know it has no lasting smell and just looks like hard plastic when dried.
I cast my own backgrounds out of plastic and drill holes into it for the toothpick method. Works great for me! Drilling that cement IN the viv is going to be a real pain. Good luck with it, man!Thanks for the quick response, but I'm assuming those methods only work for soft backgrounds, what if you have a 1" thick layer of cement as a background?
