Not coming across as too critical at all! I appreciate the thoughts.
It will certainly be interesting to see what happens when the mister is running. I hope it maintains enough moisture to grow some mosses on the branches. I already know I can grow ferns and orchids in the house with daily or every-other-day spraying.
I wish I had gotten enough done today to do an update, but I did not. I carved the GS on the islands, started painting them with Drylock, and purchased some great reddish brown rocks.
