    Roy I have not seen this one before but after looking at the first few photos I think I could have guessed it was yours you seem to be developing a style by recreating nature behind glass.

    Fantastic work.

    Crypts are funny things I have seen them melt down then bounce back, since I have got my water under control they are growing better than ever.

    I think it requires more than a "trim"more like a "Short back & sides" the harder you cut it back the thicker it will grow.

    I find it very beautiful, even without trimming! :D
    Just my opinion, I would add a little plant on the left corner (from the screen of the computer), to my mind it's a little bit empty! ;)
