I just read the entirety of this old thread, and am absolutely heartbroken that you took the plant wall down! It was a thing of beauty, and something I've wanted to do for years. So was the aquarium, of course, with the gorgeous discus and angels. Had I only known, way back when you had stuff up for sale, I would have jumped on that tank and tried to talk you out of some of your plant wall plants.
In other news, that Tillandsia cyanea doesn't entirely die. Put it in the right conditions with regards to light and water, and it creates "pups" around the edges of the dying parent plant, which you can eventually separate into individual sections and grow them to adulthood with time. I have several generations worth of "pups". The big thing is that the plant doesn't like to have its body and roots STAY wet, like all air plants (even though it's one of the few who need/do nicely in certain types of soil as long as it drains well).
It was really nice reading this thread. People and their decor change, but, like I said, it was heartbreaking to know it was all taken down! It was Heavenly :-).
