Awards and Judge Comments

Nice trimming of your stem plants toward the back, but the moss covered branch sticking up in the middle is distracting. This is a very good start but you need stronger hardscape and a more complete foreground.

Karen Randall

The plants in the foreground are too spread. Try to group them. The title is very accurate ... your hardscape is too hidden ...

Luca Galarraga

Beautiful balance. The nice blush of the reds blends nicely with the overall composition. The midground gets a little lost. If the midground were a little deeper, shorter, the entire scape would have a lot more depth. The blyxa looks a little out of place. The Staurogyne sp. could be a little thicker.
