Wow thats a fast dry start! Although looking back mine would have been far faster if I hadn't dumbly divided each pot into 5 sections . When I got another pot and planted it stem by stem it was done in 3 weeks....
WHat are you planning on planting in that back left corner? A bunch of stem plants?
Tim, its very hard to believe that is still DSM. I hope any member thinking of or doing the DSM read your post very thoroughly and understand what can be done when you follow all the basic rules of DSM
Looking really good Tim, the moss growing like a different species .Wonder if that is similar to the form of emmersed or underwater to aquatic plants in general .Excellent progress
Thanks @Culprit3, I'm going for some colour so the like of Rotala 'H’ra', and Rotala wallichii, and maybe some Rotala green for contrast.
@keithgh I think that's the key Keith, sticking to the basics
@John Whatmough Thanks John, it's hard to tell when it's in it emersed state, I'm hoping the light green spiky moss is mini Christmas moss the other one Pelia
That is what you learn along the journey of Aquascaping.
That is the reason why I am always saying learn all the basics first before you take the next step in Aquascaping.
I've decided to rechristen the scape Endor...it kinda goes with the 'Return of the Shallow Jedi' type theme, if you follow
It looks like something you would see in an outdoor setting.
It's all done in the tank...I guess I've got too much time on my hands at the moment
Looks like its a fun thing.
It was, my 10 year old, who is heavily in to Star Wars LEGO, thought it was amazing...almost like the real thing
Reminds me of Amano Nature Aquarium Gallery on closed to the public days when all his staff are doing the maintenance
I was thinking it looked like a young Boy's thing.
I have a Great Grandson that age he would rather go fishing with his Grandfather.
This is looking so good Tim.. what is the plan for driftwoods?
Love the wabi kusa globe!
Thanks @aquanick I plan to wedge half a dozen buces in the drift wood and maybe some small ferns and anubias
All those natural gaps are certainly coming in very handy.
Tim does his magic so effortlessly and it looks so good! Gives me something to aim for

Its called knowledge and many years of experience plus being able to think through your Aquascape long before you start.
They certainly are Keith. I tried to be sparing with the moss and visualise where the other epiphytes would look best placed.
However, the moss has had other ideas and has sprung up where I didn't place it and in other areas has grown so much it's taking over. I'll have to remove some of it before I plant.
Thank you @Zeus that's kind of you to say so
I guess when all said and done, forums like ASW give us all the opportunity to learn from one another
Little pieces must have broken off in the original planting and moved around the water column until it found a resting spot.
I think its more of an Intermediate to Beginners Forum now its a pity many do not stay around to help others.
