zoragen Great start!

I suck at attaching plants to rock or wood. The only way I can do it is w/ glue.

I was able to cram some petite anubias into crevices in my drift wood & some java ferns.

But they are not exactly well attached.

And they have a bit of algae!

I started. Hopefully I can make this first attempt at a planted aquarium work. 6 plants here. Starting a bit slow.

etgregoire I have a couple of rocks that i have very densely covered in peacock moss. i started with rather thick bunches and then I used a shower scrubbie cut apart so it was just a sheet of the plastic netting. I think that really helped it give it a good starting point to spread and be very filled in.

Last year ADA streamed a seminar and posted these videos later. Maybe you will get some hints on how tos from these.

And here is a video with the larger tank several months later. It is the last one shown I think.

There are other set up videos by master scapers out there.

jonathan ^ I Understand that much I think -- and I will have this in time. I would like to know how it starts. The logistics behind the very first steps. Maybe some tips can be gleaned ??

Kathyy Good tools.
Growing in.
Plenty of light, CO2 and appropriate fertilizing.

How do you densly populate drift wood ? Examples inside.

These for example. I know you can for example tie a fern to driftwood -- but how would do this so densely ? It amazes me.
