"emerged" driftwood

I thought this was pretty cool. This 3 gallon is going on 2 years old, and I always had the top of this wood sticking out of the water like a stump. Didn't mean too at first, just didn't cut the wood short enough - now I would recommend doing it on purpose if you can
After sticking scraps of ricca and mosses to it for 2 years, here is the result.

Starting point:

I like it I got a similar set up. At first the wood got moldy but after a while that stopped. Did you have that trouble as well?

Well that's just like.........your opinion man.

really nice before and after pics.

I didn't realize there were two pics at first, and was thinking: "you should stick some moss or something on top", and then I scrolled down to the second pic.

Very nice! I've got some emersed driftwood and 'rock'scape in my paludarium that I'm trying to do this with. Your mature stump looks superb!

Trying to "dream up" a scape like that right now. Hardly hope for it to look that good
as I don't have a rimless to do it/w.
Really wish it could be in a Mr. Aqua 17g tank.
Great job, also on keeping the tank real clean looking as I've been wondering what
one of those acrilic tanks would look like after a year or so of use.

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line...in the opposite direction...
