    Decided to give the top of the tank a bit of a "jungle" look.

    That can work very well, esp if the Tillandsia do not stay too wet.

    Very nice ...

    Thank you Ferdie. The Tillandsia stays dry, no water splashing on them at all. There will be some humidity from evaporation I assume but plenty of air flow around them.

    They do look wet because I give them a light spray of water.

    Thanks very much. Really happy with the results, and the plants inside the tank are growing very nicely.

    The wilds are settling in nicely. Unfortunately lost 2 of the initial six after a PP dip.
