#291: 162L Aquatic Garden Island Wonder Tree

Chan Kwong Ping Hong Kong, Hong Kong


Good layout. The Microsorum “narrow” dominates If planted in the background would have looked better.
— Inderjeet Singh Bansal
Your central arrangement of plants and wood is lovely as is your foreground planting. Unfortunately your rockwork around the base really lets you down. The rocks are too evenly spaced and look very artificial. Try for a little more random placement and use rocks that are not all so similar in size.
— Karen Randall
Good balance healthy plants nice perspective ... but the stones in the base could be positioned in a more natural form. Also the "hook" shaped driftwood could be changed for a more interesting shape driftwood.

The hardscape is well done. The plant selection works well together. The quiet blush of reds works to compliment the rest of the scape. The Microsorum “narrow” is a little distracting and might have been better placed in the background instead of the front. It tends to grab the eye as a focal point. Great depth.
— Drinda Jacobson
Very harmonic
