Very nice. Love all your set ups as you know.
The riparium is an interesting project, quite fancy trying something like that.
Thank you Stanzzzz7 Stanzzzz7 ! I want to try my hand at a complex riparium. Wish me luck!

Got some plants in. Some Wandering Jew, Umbrella Palms, and some fireball bromeliads. Also some more Bacopa Moneywort. Not sure how the terrestrial plants will grow as all of these are new plant species for me.

I also used some bamboo skewers to attach the bromeliad stolons to the epiweb. I recommend toothpicks instead as these bend and make it hard to penetrate through the epiweb.

I wrapped some damp long fiber sphagum moss to the stolen of the bromeliads and attached them with the bamboo skewers. I placed the bare roots of the Wandering Jew into the holes inside some trellis rafts I have left over from my old riparium. Lastly, I planted the palm directly into some planting baskets that are submerged in the back.

Still waiting on some Christmas Moss and Pennywort I have on order along with a baby tut papyrus for the right side of the back wall.

I hope these plants do well. I’ll keep you posted.

Thank you. The key is if I can keep these plants alive. Lol
Wow. You should do this professionally. People would pay top dollar for this amazing artistry.
Quick update after moving the plants around a little.

Couple more. Can’t wait until the rest of the plants arrive.
