I just bought two beautiful tropical-type bromeliads and I want to repot them in shallow bowls. They are in pots that are about 4 inches deep, the bowls are maybe 2 1/2 inches deep. I know the rootball will extend above the rim of the bowl, but I was thinking of anchoring it with netting and/or gravel.  Is this a bad idea? Will it be bad for the plants?

Thanks in advance to the clever and knowledgable craftster who can help me.  Smiley
