include space, depth and areas of tension. There are no set designs or styles, and no limitations of the types of materials. The choices are as endless as the imagination. The containers are usually non-traditional. Multiple containers are often used as an option. Many have several openings, so the traditional tools and mechanics (floral foam or needle holders) may not be useful. Exotic plant material such as: anthuriums, bromeliads, birds of paradise, ginger, protea's and other tropical flowers are suitable and popular. They last for days with very little water

It can be a two dimensional collage which hangs on a wall, a design that fits in a niche, a sculptural design to be shown in front of a hanging collage, or you can create a framed sculpture.
