This tank has been an on going project for 3 weeks or so...from putting my orchids with pots in the soil to air mounting them. This free up a lot of space on the substrate and finally completed it today with a 6" spread Earth Star pink (whooping $3 at Lowes--awesome deal) and Pelia moon valley.
Wow that is beautiful they layout the plants just absolutely stunning
Thanks. I think the plants are finally getting used to the environment and I am seeing some good growths now. Just waiting for the creeping plants to grow more and to wrap around the fake vine in the middle and on the driftwood. I am hoping the Wandering Jews I got today would grow some more and begin to creep on the blue background. The bromeliad by the right side is developing 4 pulps. Within few weeks, I could remove them from the mother plant and to find room for them in the tank.
Nice layout! Are you putting any live inhabitants in there?
Thanks. Live stocks??? Maybe not...dart frogs would be nice but expensive. Then, I would have to deal with a whole load of issues. Issues about dart frogs that I don't even know what they are..heheheh
Here is another update. The creeping figs are taking off well and they should cover the blue background soon enough. I removed my poka dot plants because they are getting leggy. My orchids are done blooming except the smaller one by the front and I clipped the spikes on the others. They are all growing new leaves right now.
Can anyone id the plant by the center bottom? I got two ferns yesterday from the Brooklyn Botanical Garden. Some plants there are a bit pricy but the rarer ones are worth the money. These two are rare since I have not seen them before locally. The far left one is the Pellaea Falcata. I am not sure what the center one is called?
Looking better and better I can stare at that thing for hrs it's just stunning
A+++ my hat off to you Sir
Thanks. Also, I have some green gecko crypts growing by the driftwood, in their emersed form. In its previous life, the driftwood by the right had crypts growing THROUGH it. Now, because of the high humidity, some of them are growing out from the driftwood.

Very nice and very dart frog worthy! Darts are actually really easy to take care of tbo. Just remember if you decide to get them to not mix them. One type only per tank or else they can kill each other from stress or other reasons. Can't wait to see any more pictures in the future!!!
Last shot with the lights all on.... Oh yeah, my fungus gnat infestation is under control after watering with mosquito dunk solution. There's the yellow sticky pad to catch the remaining fungus gnats. The pad has been in there for a week and only caught about 10 gnats.
