Awards and Comments

First Place
Nicely done but perhaps break up the Ficus pumila 'mat' with the right piece of wood.
— Cory Nudelman
The plants in this one look impeccable. They look extremely healthy and really make for a beautiful arrangement.
— Tanner Serpa
Bold and bright and really healthy above and below water. The Monolena might be a little TOO big and bright to the point that it somewhat dominates the scene. But it is certainly a "statement piece" and you have done an exemplary job with your plants and shaping both above AND below the water! Kudos to you!!!
— Karen Randall
