I don't quite get what the site's saying...Does anyone have anything to say about trimming? They are growing crazily!
Basically, let them start growing, then trim low, let the side shoots get high, then trim a little higher than the last trim, let the side shoots get higher, then trim again. the more you trim with most stems, the bushier they get. if you trim them in say a mound shape, the new growth will follow that shape. ect.
As you might have already found out, there is dwarf baby tears on the right hand side of the tank. They seem to be growing but kinda slowly...How long do I have to wait until they finally form a nice carpet?
It's sometimes disappointing, when people do not know how to appreciate art works. To some, it's just a fish tank with some stones and plants. They know nothing about composition of the stones and plants, choice of stones, plants and fish. They don't know how important imagination is in art: they can get why a few pieces of stones symbolize an epic landscape.
Well, it's definitely not a masterpiece; it can only be loosely classified as a piece of art (because of the little effort and time spent on placing the stones in a less casual way); I am an ameteur but it's not a fish tank with a few pieces of stones.
Nice, looks bigger than it actually is. If it were me though, I would've picked slightly smaller rocks to exaggerate the scale even more. Plus I'd use a little less substrate; you need all the real estate you can get and you don't have any heavy stem plants that need that much, technically.
