Bromeliads & wood go hand in hand (they’re epiphytic & most of them grow on trees in their natural environments) so here’s an easy way to get them to grow on and attach to driftwood, a branch, a log or any form of wood.

I live in Santa Barbara just 7 blocks from the ocean & love to go for walks on the beach. Sometimes I just stroll & zone out enjoying all the beauty, or perhaps chat with a friend & then there are those times when I have a mission: a major search for “beachy treasures”. I’m a big fan of driftwood!
I’ve seen “bromeliad trees” at various shows and also online so this is a mini version of that. I only attached 1 bromeliad, my Neoregelia, but easily could have used more. A piece of driftwood as thin as this one would look spiffy with 5 or 6 smaller bromeliads (the 4″ pot size) growing in its nooks.
Bromeliads are tough, oh so interesting & don’t need to be fussed over which makes them very popular houseplants. The piece that I made here can sit on a table or be hung on a wall. If your bromeliads have something to grow into, they’ll be good to go for a long time. Another piece of living art!
