Not sure if this has been discussed, but do I see that you have plants planted in clay pots within the planter?

It's still alive:


This was just after the move, before I took out most of the plants to throw in my 270g pond.


After the destruction. I added back in 2-3" clippings.


This is recently, stems grew back and water cleared up.

All plants are just plugged into the bottom now, maybe 6" of lava rocks + dirt.

Wow this is super cool! I was looking at some of the big plastic pots, 22-24", at lowes this evening for something similar to this!

Looking good! I'm glad to see it's still up. I can't wait to set mine up again. The weather here just isn't warm enough yet

So now that you've teased us about the 270 gallon pond... I'm going to check that thread out
