Didn't think anyone really cared about the light since it's not one of those fancy multi led color lights. Even though it's just as full spectrum as those light with just 2 LEDs

So my Tillandsia came in from rainforest flora. These guys were awesome btw. I also only ordered 4 and they sent me 6. They are all different kinds. This is what I am thinking as far as placement.







I am pretty sure if I put a small one on the lone branch to the left it can work without it being in the water. What you all think?
