Hi guys....Show us your best epiphyte clumps, tree artistry, pending experiments or habitat pics !...  Grin

Two different clones of Neo. correia-araujoi growing on an oak stump in my garden. I love the natural look and how the light makes the leaves glow in Winter...

Hi Graeme,

Here's a few old pics of my column vertical garden at home in Melbourne. Probably time to update the images as its now notably more grown in. Constructed in April this year.
Designed to develop artificial ecologies that protect species and develop a mixed species tree canopy above, allowing ferns, orchids and sensitive species to, in time, expand under protection from the harsh summer sun. Just under 4m tall. Made form recycled plastic supports, with fully integrated irrigation and fertigation.

Neoregelia's, Aechmea's, Vriesea's, Billbergia's Quesnelia's, Nidularium, various Peperomia's, Gesneriads, orchids, ferns, trees, etc. In fact 53 species!!

So far has (luckily) survived 5 frosts and two storms of 100km winds. My nerves were shattered by the morning following the first storm  Shocked
Enjoy,
Erik

Hi All

This was my first epiphytic experience. In Ecuador at Baeza, so headed out of Quito up and just over the hill headed towards the Amazon Basin. We stopped for lunch and the trees were loaded in Tillandsia tovarensis, maculata or whatever sp. they be.You are not allowed to view images.

Awesome pics John, thanks for sharing!

I like the one of Ae. orlandeana, notably with someone sitting back, chilling, in the background beneath your creation... perfect siesta pos! Thats what its all about I say.
