I like the idea and the bottom looks good. Only problem I see is the wood you used for the trunk. Is to small for the trunk and doesn't really have trunk characteristics. I know it can be hard finding wood that will work. I'm having the same problem.

I agree, but please keep in mind perspective. The angle makes the wood look smaller than it really is, but even still, it is too small.

I did one of these several years ago. It was hard to find the right piece of wood that would be the trunk and the branches. Look at the zip tie moss tree in my signature and the 1 foot cube tank for more grow out pictures. It was a fun project and easier than you may think.

To the OP yours is a very good start, be diligent at pruning and you'll have great results.

Rballi has some really nice manzanita wood for sale. Im probably going to buy one of the smaller ones. Alot of them could be used for trees. Check out the thread.
