Additional Information Inspired by a barren/marsh near my hometown filled with low lying plants and shrubs and Many ponds that contain large lily pads. Although mosses chosen are Stereotypically terrestrial the specimens chosen were harvested from Rocks in a stream pool that are submerged >70% of the time.
I chose cork as the main hard scape for this work so that the mosses above the water can get adequate moisture from the damp cork underneath.
