I was at Hobby Lobby yesterday and they had garden stuff half off. Well naturally I had to buy something. I spied a topiary form and had an idea. I want to make a "chandelier" to suspend over my bathtub. My thought was to turn the topiary form upside down and fill it with plants. I would like to use epiphytes as they would just be the logical choice for such a thing. The problem is that I would like to use multiple kinds together. Do any of you have any suggestions as to which ones you think would go well? Here is a pic of the form. This will be upside down remember.

Steph.... Sorry to be so late responding.... That is a cool trellis and it would be GREAT for hanging plants....especially over a bathtub with the moisture! What about philodendrons? Hoyas? Some orchids? You should be able to find some at the box stores in big pots for not much money.... Dischidia ruscifolia would be cool, too!

Thanks Carol,
I had posted this here and go no responses,so I posted on DG and got lots. Here's what I've got so far for this project.
Two different mini hoyas, tiny rhipsalis, dischidia million hearts, and orchids for the top. Hmmm philos, didn't think about those. Any certain ones you have in mind?
