Thanks! Trying to slope that area up with aquasoil and 049, who knows I might change my mind a bunch before then.

I like how it slopes down to the right and your RCS look nice as well. I bet it looks amazing in person. Pictures never do enough justice...
Thanks!

How did you apply the fiss so evenly across the wood, did you do a dry start?

Haven't trimmed at all since last update, things are getting a bit bushy. The 049 on the right side rear hasn't really taken off like I wanted it to, possibly because of the more shallow substrate, and/or being shaded by the lily pipes and L. aromatica. Going to do a big hack and build a little manzanita retaining wall over on the right and give the 049 one more shot. I'll post an update tomorrow once things clear up.

nicely nicely done. i always get jealous when someone gets their moss very green and lush. i've been having issues with my mini pellia and just got some fissidens in to try again.

may i ask what your temperature is around on average? i ask because i've read that moss grows better in cooler temperatures (below 70) and was curious if yours was also.

great job!

Nicely done x_mas one.

Very beautiful scape, I love how the reds contrast with the green! Also how the round hills build up.
