Re: [aroid-l] Artificial trees

I have been successful gluing Tillandsias with Goop but when the older
leaves begin to turn brown they normally let go. The hope is that they
would have attached themselves by then. I have also fishing line but it
doesn't look very good as you said. I have also had good success using a
lightweight galvanized wire. I wrap it around the base and then thread that
down to the object your attaching it to. This has worked well in the past
and I have some that are 4 years old which are doing very well done this
way. If your afraid of galvanized wire ( I've heard some say it's poison to
Bromes) you could use plastic coated wire.
As for the rotting bark, well, it's just makes a mess and doesn't help much
but the plants on the ground below the tree.

if the bark rots it should be good for the plants, right? One more question.
How do you secure them initially? I tried a recommended glue with
tillandsias and whatever the glue touched, died. The wrapped fishing line
leaves something to be desired.
but the bark come away quickly
