Create a bromeliad log
I am hoping for some advice about creating a bromeliad/epiphyte log in my conservatory. I have a piece of hardwood branch, which fits the space perfectly. It would be in a shady spot, but obviously gets quite warm and dry in there .... particularly in summer.
I had experimented with some Tillandsias this year, using some moss as a substrate but this is impossible to keep moist enough and so quickly dies. I feel it needs something on the wood to 'latch' on to, but can't find any artificial moss in the UK.
Does anyone have any general advice regarding mounting, good species choices and general care?
