Just thought I would do a quick update. I believe it's been about 4 months since I started. I wish the phalaris was thicker, but not too bad for my first riparium. I've learned a lot and will do some things differently with the next one.
I used soil in the planters which makes replanting difficult. Also I would have got broader leafed plants for the trellis rafts. I would have arranged a little differently but this is my first riparium so I'm happy with it. I can still do these things.
