    I guess you could do the two together, I would grow Tillandsia in a brighter enviroment than a phal though... T. ionantha will usually display better pigmintation with more light. You can mount phals too, seeing as they have photosynthetic roots, I've never seen a Phal gigantea in a pot.

    [quote=Tindomul1of9]Cool thread.

    I would like to get a big piece of driftwood, or knotwood or something about 3 feet tall and that has lots of little crevises and the like.
    Then I would like to mount Tillandsias and orchids all over the wood. [quote]

    You should consider a piece of Cholla wood, also called a cactus skeleton. There is another thread about them around, I will look for it. You can easily order it over the internet or at the big auction site.
