You see that huge area of plants on the left side? How would you do that? I want to do something similar in my 120. Do you just kind of stack a bunch of dw and attach the plants? That looks so cool.

Looks like a big bunch of java fern.as you thought,just take an appropriate shaped piece of wood and start tying ferns on it. You could start with 3 or 4 plants and just tie the babies in place as they occur.

That is one way to do it, you could have a large clump of crypt or sword growing in spot as well.

Woah. That was like the worlds quickest response. I'll go through all my dw and see what I could do. Thanks.

The fastest easiest way to that is a well cared for clump of amazon sword.

Except amazon swords don't stay so tight together like that. But honestly, I'd love for you (or anyone for that matter) to prove me wrong because that would be an awesome looking sword :)

I was thinking that the micro swords might stay together, but I don't know.

I was also thinking that it kinda looks like a crypt to me...I have one that looks like that- it's just not as large yet.

2 or 3 of them in a tight group will stay that close easily. Have done it myself,should have read that before I tried it:hmm3grin2orange: possibly not quite as thick but close.

I knew that was coming:hmm3grin2orange: if you look in my sig you will see why I can't. Give you the "evidence" you want. I can assure you that I have had some very nice amazon clumps,many of the pics have been posted here in the past,several years worth really and molre then just one tanks woth as well.:ssuprised:
