#590: 19L Wabi-Kusa The summit

Brett Garcia Bremerton, United States


Beautiful natural growth of the moss on the driftwood extending out of the water portion of your Wabi-Kusa. Good contrast of color and texture. I would have liked to see the water portion of your design more clearly. Great job!

Very nice moss-covered stump. Obviously took great care of this over a long period of time to get the moss to grow that way making that wood look very old. However other plants arranged is a very straight lines which makes those areas look unnatural.

Nice lush growth and extra points for flowers. ;-) It is almost too "tight" in this container though. I know there is water because I can see the water lettuce and you tell us you are using a pump. But we can't SEE it because everything is so packed in. Visually it needs a little space to breathe. The same plant mass in a little larger vessel would work better.
