:clap:Great hardscape and details.
Looking at your plant list this will look fantastic once planted up.
Thank you!
I'm always looking for a challenge and getting closer to the Nature style seems like a must for me, i just like it so much.

Wow, really awesome. Love the detailed pics - half of them could be a 'scapes in their own right!

I keep umm-ing about Bolbitis Mini - it looks great here, but I've read it doesn't actually like being submersed?

It looks already very full and ready for iaplc shot :)
Good work!
Thank you, Alexander!
It's still far from what i invision. Will definelty work to improve it and to keep the hardscape intact, not covered.

Bolbitis mini seems to do just fine for now, new leaves after losing a few during the first 2 weeks. I'll keep you guys posted.

It is quite reminiscent of your old scape... If you're feeling adventurous, perhaps you may want to adjust to a diagonal path (instead of straight down the middle). But looking very nice!
Thanks!
I might change some things in the weeks to come, if not with the help of some small plants, maybe ending up on working on the hardscape a little.
