Awards and Judge Comments

Really nice attempt, and excellent growth. I'd try curving your "path" a bit, and perhaps tapering it toward the back for better depth.

Karen Randall

The concept here is sound, but the too large leafed ammannia and limnophilia, and wild growing rotala wallichii take away.
