The aquascape has now completed 3 weeks of the dry start method. All the plants that are actually planted in the substrate are in place now. All that is left to do when the DSM stage finishes is to attach the ferns and anubias. It will probably end up being a 5 or 6 week DSM because I haven't bought the CO2 yet and have yet to route the perspex lid which is vital to stop little children giving their toys the float test. The dog is trying different positions all the time to block access.
