This is my 15H that has been up and running for almost 2 months now. The broms are staying red, the tillandsia is doing great and even shooting out 2 purple spikes. One of the broms has fully rooted into the cork. I plan on putting a group of 4 vents in here. Think they will be happy?

may have wanted to post the smaller version, .
The pic in the post is actually the original size and the host site(the one you saw) was apparently resized by the host. I agree that it is a bit too big though. Thanks again for the help.

broms

What kind of brom's is the furthest one to the bottom on the left? there's also another one in the middle on the right-- I went to Home depot today, and they had some of those, but they were HUUUUGE! I really like those, but couldn't buy the one there, it was waaaay too big.

Matt,

I think I've said this before, but NICE TANK. I do have some questions regarding your use of the Oxalis. What variety is it (triangularis?)? Where did you get it (T&C?). How is it currently performing?

I like the plant, and I hope it does well for you. I'll post some updates on my "vent tank" soon, I promise. I just bought some more orchids for my terraria, so we'll see how it goes. My wife bought me a gift certificate to the local orchid greenhouse, http://www.hoosierorchids.com, where I spent the better part of the afternoon today.

Anyway, I came home with a few orchids :D and a list longer than my arm of orchids that I want. :roll: I'm pathetic. :x

The broms on the bottom are Neo pauciflora. Ken has them at peaceofthetropics. I like them a lot. They have a really nice silverbanding on the leaves and a huge funnel for water.

LOL. I hope you get every orchid you want. The oxalis is indeed a triangularis. It has exploded inside the tank. When I received it, there were about 5 shoots, the tallest being 4 inches. Now there are 8 shoots, the tallest being almost 10 inches. It has grown higher than my lowest brom!!

I really like the plant in there. I bought the other oxalis "fire fern" for the 29 I am putting together. I also bought a a silver dollar fern(Adiantum peruvianum??) It gets about 3 feet high but I can keep it pruned back...I first saw one at the ABG last year...awesome fern.

What are those clovers in the top right? did they just start gworing or what?
They are not actually clover, but the common name is "shamrock" They are Oxalis triangularis, and I bought it at T&C terrariums. Very nice plant with great color.
