All these elements are abundantly present here but it doesn’t help the scape.
I am so happy to see an old fashioned Echinodorus but please don’t put two species of Echinodorus next to each other.
Grasses are an important yet overlooked part of Dutch scaping...but there's simply too much of it here.
The Syngonanthus street is hyper-dominant - it should have been half the size.
Never place bright red or yellow plants right in the middle - you have both!
The entire foreground feels immature like it was just planted a few hours earlier.
