Riparium


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.Click image for larger version

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.

that aluminum plant (sp?) needs to be trimmed. Keep trimming it down and it will grow back bushier. Replant the trimmings to fill in the gaps. You have a great start it just takes time to fill in.

Thanks for the encouragement I'll keep trimming them they grow like a weed with this LED fixture perhaps it may be too much light? They seem to just shoot upwards.
