Drink_soy_sauce It's amazing that you were able to cut grooves into the log with just that small rusty pair of scissors. Haha, but seriously very neat idea.

Aquascapejackson Very orginal. reminds me of a jungle branch with orchids or ferns on top. Awesome!

foxfish Yes it was just growing to fast & spreading every where, a lot of it was reaching up too. I might try some HC next..

I didn't know swords could go substrate-less. I thought they were primarily root feeders

TRD_Power I like it better this way. I can see why the Glosso would get annoying to maintain. Great work!

foxfish Well I got fed up with maintaining the glosso so I took it out.

View from above...

JasonG75 I really wish there were pictures of the use of the mess and the planting of the glosso. I am really confused because I though glosso had to have its roots burried.. in this case they look suspended in the holes you created in the log.

Clear this process up for me please. You did a great job.

sorry I see it above now...

foxfish Thanks for all the positive replies, I would welcome anyone having a go & be very pleased to here about it.
I used the green mesh to hold in the soil but allow the plants roots to come through, just to add another dimension.
The roots have in fact come through & some are even reaching the substrate.
