I secured these Bromeliads to this tree by wrapping the root base in sphagnum moss and then covering that with a piece

of nylon stocking. It looks as though one is very happy and rewarded me with a beautiful bloom.

    When I vacationed in Fiji a few years ago, I took a tour to the Garden of the Sleeping Giant. There I saw about eight plants in a circle standing over ten feet tall. I asked the guide what they were, and asked if they were bromeliads. They looked like bromeliads the way the leaves were. She said yes, they are bromeliads! Who knew they could grow so tall?!?!
