    lol it still looks exactly the same guys.. only new news is that the pings are now rooted into the rock firmly so no longer can be accidentally knocked out of their little crevices... lol

    Can you post an update on this? I'm considering doing something similar, and this is a gorgeous example. Where'd you get the rock?

    Aannddd it still looks exactly the same. LOL. I wouldnt say the plants are thriving, I'm not doing a very good job keeping the rock wet. A certain Northwestern nursery is now selling rock gardens, and they keep a pump or something going with theirs to keep the rocks consistently wet, like a dripping wall habitat. As for the rock, I work in a saltwater aquarium shop, so getting various rocks is pretty easy for me. I used Tufa, which is a common aquarium rock. But I really think Pumice would work better if you can find a large enough piece. The smaller pores would keep it wetter longer.

    Thanks! I would like to make my own, so I'll see if any aquarium or pet stores around here carry chunks of pumice.

    You wont find Pumice in an aquarium store. You'll need to look for quarries, landscape places, etc for that.

    Oh. Well I have a quarry near me (not sure it's mining volcanic rock though) and two specialty garden centers. Maybe they can help.
