i am starting to see what i think are new leaves on my anubias!
I'm definitely seeing vertical growth in my anacharis and also new stems growing off of the original stem. I think I will start pruning and replanting, any advice?

Rescape 3 photos







what do you think? i'm hoping the back left will look better once the wisteria grows out and when/if the cabomba grows.
the java fern will hopefully grow taller and show above the driftwood from the front.
I always get plants to float and never leave them floating! (anacharis and wisteria)

gotta weigh down some of my anacharis and wisteria today so they can grow some of their own roots! also planning on getting a black poster board background to make the serpaes' red and the green plants pop

keeping anubias down?

my anubias came unrooted! will probably put a plant weight on the rhizome in two places to hold it down until the roots get their own solid grip in my substrate.

You should bury that pot another 1.5"! I think itd look better if your substrate was even almost like the pot was broken, just my opinion if it even makes sense

fissidens

fissidens came today! tied down to the driftwood with thread. it seems my mini sewing kit has become my plant anchoring kit



also, a lot of snails came with it which doesn't make me mad. I got a few out and will be putting them in my upgraded plants only project
