12in cube "The Mountain Range" (updated Nov 22 "D Day")



Well after biking 23 miles (got lost lol) and not finding any rocks that where good for a iwagumi i came home really mad. But i figured i can just use these again. But anyway hows it look? Also any tips on getting it to stay like that? I think im gonna do it the dry start method.

23 miles is a good ride

I like it. I might make the large one in the rear a little (3cm) higher or the one in front of it lower to create more of a peak.

Maybe do a retaining wall to help keep everything in the back and hide it with the gravel in the front?

What are you going to plant?

the hardscape is great. start planting whatever densely, espescially around the slopes.

i know what u mean this is my first time over 14 miles, the only thing keeping me going was there was no other way to get home (parents r at work and mom gets home late and dad has a motorcycle) and it was lunch time

I think it looks really good. It looks like hills instead of mountains. Good luck on the UG ive tried it emerced and submersed and it all died. Did you go to the rock yard I told you about.

I think thats the place. If you look in the back there are some that are smaller. Plus if you ask you can buy one and have them brake it for you. I have done that before.

looks good to me just make sure the water is right under the soil if it is above i would let it air out for 2 hours or so. i would do a 9 hour photo period too

It looks fine, but you probably don't need that much water. You don't need to submerge any of the plants. Look up capillary action to get a better understanding of how this works. You just need to mist whenever the soil starts to dry out a bit. When I did my 10"cube, I found that the hills need misting more often, as they tended to dry out a bit faster.
