    image.jpg So I have this little 40l 'night light' that is just begging for some attention.

    So does anyone have any suggestions? I was thinking about some cobra grass in front and around the stump, with some java ferns and moss on the stump. Maybe some taller grass at the back? Making it a lawn, essentially...

    I know Richard still has cobra grass left...and a few of the new "fine" Vallis Nana for the back???

    Maybe he can give you an ETA on his Japanese HG if you rather wanna go that route instead of the Lilaeopsis...?!

    Maybe instead of cobra grass, try HG because it has fine leaves. Also If you do go for java fern, try either the narrow leaf or Petite java ferns instead of the normal broad leaf java. Oh don't forget about the Anubias nana and some S.repens on the slopes.

    the wood is pretty much in the center, move it slightly to the left or the right for a more natural look..

    So, there is a 'branch' to the left, so I can't take it more left, and rotating it would be difficult. What if we call it a centre piece ;)


    I would snatch that up so quick, but patience is not a virtue I have mastered. I will give Richard a tinkle though

    Ok, so what to do with the woody bit then?

    Can't you turn it upside down and position the thick centre piece in one of the corners give the illusion that it is growing from the corner towards the centre?
