Hi Erik,
In the wild imitators are frequently found breeding in Heliconias and Xanthosomas. In both cases the eggs are deposited vertically. Even when they breed in bromeliads, the eggs are attached to the backside of the more inner leaf. That puts them somewhat upside down, right over the water. In captivity, they seem to be more flexible and will lay eggs on the top of leaves as well. I've never seen it personally, but I think others here regularly have their pairs deposit eggs right on the vertical glass of their viv's. Maybe they think they are in the wild :) Glad to see they are breeding for you.
