This is a pretty arrangement with nice flowing lines and healthy growth. Good for you for getting your plants to flower at the right time!
— Karen Randall
The color selection was very nice and added a lot of interest throughout the arrangement. However adding some height to the creation would have taken it up a notch and balanced out the dish.
— JoAnn Fujii
Impressive arrangement. It is evident that care has gone into the development of the hardscape in both submerged and emergent portions. The same can be said for planting. The Pogostemon erectus blooms are impressive though were likely even more impressive 2-3 days after your documentation!

Very fond of the trailing Bacopa monnieri which gives a wild unrestrained impression that I believe could be made even more impactful with a greater volume of stems.
