A bit too much naked hardscape I think. Either use some moss, or what might be better would be to plant some e. tenellus in front of the rocks that will mix with the glosso.

I think the stems are going to need more space to be affective here, so try and widen the group. Honestly, I think all r. macrandra green would look better than both types.

I really like the hardscape, once the glosso fills in a bit and some algae grows on the rocks it will look even better.

I plan to do a little softning of the rocks and wood, but I wanted the plants to fill in a bit to see what happens.

I love it. It is beautiful. The only thing that's a little off-putting to me is how the main focus is dead center, but that's just my personal taste. I don't know if it'd look right more off center.

Chi-Chi-Chi-CHIA!!!

Just had to.

Leave the rocks and the wood or else some of those fingers will be broken.



It really looks nice and you really have to wait and seee how everything fills in. I'm totally diggin the hardscape and can't wait for the final outcome.

I would leave the rocks bare with no plants on them, Once everything fills in it will provide very nice contrast with everything else. And once they start gettin the purty algae growing on them and get less clean it will add a nice aged look to it. I say let it grow in and see how it looks and dont add anything or touch anything.
