    Can air plants be used with T's?

    I tried and failed. Doesn't mean it can't be done though. The plants still need to be misted every once in a while. Also, mine got webbed up and I assume the webbing just choked the plant out.

    Epiphtes need a constant exchange of air. I can't imagine enough of an air exchange in any enclosure for them to be thrifty.

    They also really dislike being wet. Unless you have a good way of keeping it from getting to wet, you won't have much luck.

    Tillandsia can work, a lot of dart frog people use them in their vivs. They do need to dry out regularly so can't be kept in a constantly humid section and definitely not wrapped in sphagnum. They're also high light lovers.
