Are the air plants the ones that look dead and then when you give them water they green up again?
If so not sure if you can or cant use them but id think they would take up to much moisture in the viv and the humidity levels would drop

I think most air plants are fine. Obvious things like spikey air plants cant be safe. I keep some like round whispy little airplants in one of my gecko vivs and its perfect. Adds to the arid desert look and takes no care.

they great IMO. tie them to some nice nooks with a tiny amout of soil/leaves and give them decent light. they do fine...mist them now and then. just bromiliads.

Faith, you're thinking of the selaginella (sp) but even thats find in vivs. Airplants are brilliant, just make sure you afix them with aquarium safe silicone not the stuff they give you with them because you never know what toxins it has in it as its not designed to be with animals. Airplants themselves are fine, i have them in all my vivs.
