I am in the process of pulling together everything I need for a rescape. My last one has not grown out as I envisioned and I'm quite tired of the mess that has grown before me. I would appreciate some thoughts on the composition of my hardscape layout I have chosen. The branches available: Final choice: Other options I toyed with... I felt the centered composition had the best balance. Plants will be a number of stems and C. helferi in the back. Midground: blyxxa, Crypts, S. repens, various other small midgrounds, Ground cover: undecided..depending if I can get my HC to take off. Some riccia covered stones, some eleocharis in places, belem and acicularis. I'm considering using tonina lotus blossom as short stems in one or multiple locations of mid/foreground. I would like a mixed wild look to the foreground. Branches will have willow moss(because I could find it in suitable quantities) and fissidens fontanus around the bases and front branch with H pinnatifida, maybe trident fern on the branch moving to the front over the stones, anubias nana and nana petite among the stones and mid stone section with a bucelephandra species in one location for a pop of variation. Bolbitus and willow at various heights of the branches accompanied by willow moss. Stem list (subject to change) P. stellatus "broad leaf", Rotala singapore, rotala indica, pogostemon to comprise the bulk of the green and break up the colors...i would like a suggestion on a good green rotala to mix in the the other colored ones to give a neat mix of shades/colors. another broad leafed red stem, limnophilia hippuroides (or aromatica not sure which i have since i had both at one time and couldn't tell them apart) the larger broad leafed stems will be among the middle third of the scape with a background of the rotala mix. C helferi on the sides and possibly one location within the middle third. Please share your thoughts and critiques of my plans. Once the project is underway I will start a proper journal. Thanks for reading and commenting!
