How should I go about adding a black background? I've heard about vinyl, but never quite understood the application of it.

I'll be visiting my lfs tomorrow and see what they have for bunched plants.

I've decided to post progress pics every Friday, as that lines up with my wc & trim time (with before and after).

Once again, thanks for your kind words. I've found a home here at plantedtank
I am impatient as well, and I keep hearing about "Patience is a virtue". Anyways. As for the background, if it's going to be covered by tall plants, I don't think it's necessary. But the idea, is to get dark background to bring up color of your plants. As for the vinyl, it's easy to apply, nothing to worry about. I can't wait to see the progresss
