Bromeliad planting (newbie question)

Postby ticmike » Fri Jan 17, 2014 10:55 am

Am I right in thinking that when planting my brom in my terrarium I don't need to plant in a soil, I can just jam the roots into cracks or driftwood etc...
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Correct.

Stake the broms on wood or cork and they should do well with intermittent water spraying.

When you say 'stake' surly you don't mean through the plant itself?

you can literally take a pin and stick it thru the stem / bottom part of the brom but a dab of hot glue or gorilla glue works just as good, so do plastic ties or just plain stuff/jamming or balancing the brom in and on the wood feature.

Easy peasy...it's all good and mostly bullet proof.
