I guess the best advice here will come from Jill at justairplants,i can't give you alink but you'll find her, but they are not difficult Dani,keep the pool full and the feet not too wet in viv that will work,plant them in a sopping wet substrate and almost all will rot,get your head around the word epiphyte mate,i grow our food worked in horticulture its a different concept understand it and all is simple.most of the broms we use can actually have a bone dry base humid air and water in the pool are the big ones,taking pups will come later :D

well lets go for a neo then as its likely,the stem holding the pup is simply severed as near to the parent as possibly pull the parent's leaf down and use secatuers as they can be tough,as it will root epiphytically so the stem(stolen i think can be attached to a dry viv with silicone,or puched into a whole drilled into a bit of wood,the stem will rot and roots will appear,to anchor the plant in place

top wet pool full bottom dryer an you'll be sorted mate,thing is Dani if you get it right the parent will keep going producing more pups, often times, if you remove the pups at the right time!!.... its a great way to build up numbers and still keep the original plant,if the original has pups too big often she will die

Nice work on the Tat Dani didn't realise it was your work.Buddy be a little bit careful buy plants from garden centers because of the sprays/fertilisers they use,at the very least give them a damn good wash and remove the compo,i can't think how far webbs of wychbold is from you they sometimes have some nice plants in stock,maybe a bit too far away,anyway becareful dude,growing plants organically is not the cheepest way but its best for our frogs
