#625: 7.8L Wabi-Kusa Floating island

Evgeniya Moiseeva Moscow, Russian Federation


An impressive arrangement of well-grown emersed plants. The decision to use H. tripartita was a good one providing a linearity from the emergent to the submerged.

Some humidity damage is present at the tips of your Alternanthera reineckii 'Mini' a species that benefits from generous misting. That said the planting arrangement is attractive and well-composed displaying great skill.

The offset look with the wood looks good however I would have made the third wood a little higher or one of the two on the right a little shorter to make the arrangement more interesting.

Very clean pretty Wabi Kusa. It has all the right basic pieces it just needs a bit of excitement! More interesting wood might help. The two pieces are so similar and placed right side by side. See if you can find something with a bit more character.

Nice use of hardscape to design your layout. The plants look to be healthy and thriving however the Hydrocotyle needs to be trained a bit to help its growth pattern. Nice job.
