    Your probably one of the best Canadian gowers here Vraev... Your plants are outstanding. Especially that heli in the Sphagnum, I want some of that moss.

    What camera do you use? The photos are extremely sharp!
    Thanks Devon. lol. For sure! I can send u a small clump to get started with. The camera is Nikon D90 and the lens is Nikkor 60mm micro. The images have been touched very slightly in photoshop to bring out a bit of the details. (You can see the artifact if you look closely in the H. nutans pic...the black haze around the heli)

    Thanks pet. lol!! I hardly ever take the time to trim my plants. I avoid cutting off leaves unless they are fully crispy and dried. Thanks! This was the only moss that survived the time when I used to use RO water which was too high in nutrients. I am glad it is still alive and thriving. I try pretty hard to ensure that it is always wet and water the moss, but not the plant.

    You have some amazing plants there. The effort you have put in shows. Just wondering if I might submit a request and ask for a long shot of the grow space (tank) as a whole, just so we can see the whole effect coming together. Love your idea of the air garden. Have done this myself in two tanks and one some suspended logs in my dragon tank (pogo minor).

    Hey! Amazing plants! Quick question- what does it take to grow the sphagnum on the branch like that?

    Regarding the sphagnum on the branch. I basically placed a wad of dead LFS and planted it with live lfs. Then I just kept watering it regularly. I haven't moved the branch in over an year, so I am unsure about the security. I don't remember if I tied it down or not. But you can tie it down to be sure.
