Anyone ever grow this gorgeous tillandsia in a frog tank? I just purchased a specimen from the Washington home and garden show. Couldn't resist as I walked by it. I have a feeling that frog tanks are too humid but I was just wondering...perhaps in some of the taller tanks.

some people have reported success if they are mounted high in the tank and at a downward angle so that water does not collect on the leaves. Most people however report that they just rot out.

That particular species does really well in a humid tank. No need to plant upside down as it is one of about three species in the genus which grows better potted, as oppossed to mounted. Becareful they get huge, one of mine has about 24 inch long leaves.

I've had one in a terrarium for over a year. They tolerate moist conditions better than other tillandsia species and as long as they aren't constantly saturated in water they won't rot. As someone else mentioned, their leafs will grow very long so make sure there is plenty of room.
