Care and Culture, Classification, Growing Indoors
Provision should be made for medium-sized bromeliads by nailing some curved pieces of bark to form pockets, which will contain the roots.
Aechmea, Billbergia, Neoregelia and Nidularium can be planted in these pockets, using a mixture of sphagnum moss and moss peat and covering the surface with a layer of sphagnum moss alone. Epiphytic and xerophytic plants are prepared by covering their roots with a ball of sphagnum moss and tying or nailing these to the bark tree. Some of the very grey-leaved Tillandsia may be attached simply by gluing the base on to the bark with silicone adhesive.
