scored a nice haul at the plant shop. a couple bags of live moss, a few plants i was looking for, a few i wasn't and a "hitchhiker"


hitchhiker i believe he's a cuban tree frog, waiting on confirmation. meet 'Fidel', guess this will be another build down the road...lol


now we're as planted as we will be until after the holidays when i place my orchid order

Thanks Amanda! I'm pretty pleased with how it came out. Now we just let it grow. Should be interesting to see what it looks like a few months from now.
