Hello and thank you to all
After several months of absence, I just give a little news of this project: D
Evolution of Vegetation - 6 months (this winter)
Six months have passed since the installation of vegetation, a small summary of winter images is required.
The life goes on inside the plants always grow as much.
I added an Jasminum Sambac (or Arabian Jasmine). It flourished in soon after.
We can see that the branches of driftwood begin to ward off humus on their surface. This is the result of the renewal foam, which gives more nutrients to new mosses and plants that grow there.
The bottom of the water is obviously messed with the time, but it has the advantage of accentuating the natural effect.
Water is however quite clean and clear, it is only on the bottom that accumulates the development of cyanobacteria.
Evolution of Vegetation - 1 Year
A year that the project is running alone, I did not intervene it, I chose to "let do".
Some plants have disappeared, others have proliferated, as expected the ficus pumila "repens" and especially the foam "Lebermoos" literally invaded the project.
Here are some pictures before pruning :
We can see the algae accumulated at the bottom of the water, creating a thick carpet.
Cutting of vegetation (currently)
Here is the project now, after a big cleaning of the water area and the hobbing plants "invaders."
However, I left a part dirt in here and there on the sand to keep this little wild effect.
