Looking forward to seeing this progress. You should take a look through Medicineman's journal as it is similar to your build in some ways.

Cypress is virtually "bullet proof" and will take decades to show any decomposition. Can be incorporated into a divider across
the border between the "land" and water. Part or all of. Also might make a "tree in the water". Any or all with the bark still on it.
I'm from LA. originally so my thoughts would go there of course. And really, since it's a "water tree" you could actually put
a live one in there and the low light would make it grow more slowly like a Bonsai tree. But don't let my daydreams impose
themselves on your project...LOL...
But ferns...there's a large wild fern which grows primarily under trees and where common it makes the place look like a scene
from a dinosaur movie..does get about 4' though.

Here my comments ;

Im friggin so jealous that I cant do that right now!

I work from home and have two tanks in my home office, a 40g breeder and 20L riparium / planted (the differences become trivial IMO).

Anyways, this would be the ultimate home office set up! Good luck and keep posting photos of progress!
