air plants.

hay guys..........
you know those plants that they usually stick to bits of wood,
you only need to spry them now and then,
would anyone know where you can buy them from unattached from.
i'm thinking of using these for the vivarium instead of the plastic plants.
cheers for any suggestions :)

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

I've got a few of them and I've had to purchase them at specialty nurserys and one was a "pup" taken from a friend's mother plant. Too bad you're all the way in the UK as if you were in the states I could send you a "pup". Do you have any specialty nurserys over there?? I highly recommend these plants, very low maintenance, misting is all that's required.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
