#389: 2.8L Riparium Kalem

Flea Andrias Bandung, Indonesia


The planting of this tiny riparium is so clever and beautiful. The overall impression is what one might find at a pond's edge. The Hydrocotyle Verticulata (HV) and Frogbit interplay beautifully. And the Acorus Graminieus occupying the space under the HV is a lovely complimentary planting.

I enjoy the view from above but I'd appreciate a view where I'm seeing a littl more of the submerged portion of the riparium. I think this layout could be elevated if the gravel details felt a little more aged and with a little less precise placement. The overall planting feels young and could benefit from a bit more time.

There is a lot to love in this tiny riparium.

Like the simplicity of the entire arrangement. Wood on the right would have looked more natural if not so symmetrical.
