Ideas for suitable plants

ourarkaSeptember 2, 2013

After my first attempt at a bromeliad log didn't really work, my next one is going to involve mounting on a coir pole, in the hope of it providing a good anchor for the roots and retaining a little more moisture than my previous branch. I was just hoping for some recommendations regarding plants ....

I am looking for epiphytic bromeliads, or other epiphytes, that aren't too huge. don't need very high humidity and will tolerate conservatory temps (hot in summer down to cool, but frost free, in winter). The spot in the conservatory is out of direct sun, so bright but shaded.

Small neo and small Aechmea make a great base for that type of planting...if its a large pole or log. Tillandsia are better for small plantings. Once started they require little care.

Thanks Hotdiggety - Ill look in to those. Pole is about 1 meter so certainly don't want anything too big.
