Made this from some logs I found at a brush dump near my home. I think it turned out nice. Plus brings the bromeliads up to eye level for a closer look.

Great idea. I too found some logs just the other day and was wondering how to put my larger pots on? I guess you wired them and then draped the Tillandsia usnoides over the wire?
Good job! Guess I better have another go at this one!

Very nice ineed,a good idea to cover the containers with Spanish Moss.What are the chances of placing the plants on the wood without containers, similar to Tillandsia's..I have seen various broms growing on trees in Thailand and Malaysia.and am going to try with some pups as soon as i can find some space.

I use something called Pot Klips. You just screw them onto some wood or some old logs and attach your pots. They come in a 6 pack for around $7 bucks or so. I use them to display all my orchids and most of my bromeliads. Do a search on the internet, some orchid supply places sell them.

Beautiful tree and great collection but your wall hanging frogs are so pretty. Have you bought and make these in home.
