    Anyone know a good source for emerged mosses and plants for the parts of my 135 that are above the waterline?

    Most plants will adapt well - esp if you can keep them very very wet like I have done here

    I find that TC seems to be more adaptable.

    Thanks ... glad you like it. Nothing more than what one would get in a tank .. that said most of the wood is form previous scapes. Maybe just been lucky?

    A year has passed

    I have learned so much doing this tank. Mostly - let it be and limit any big changes.

    If you want to grow mosses above water line, you don't have to buy them but can easily collect terrestrial mosses outside. Terrestrial mosses may not survive permanently submerged, but they thrive in humid environment above water line. As for growing plants above water line, most aquatic plants will grow immersed with their roots submerged. Epyphytes such as ferns, anubias and buce look good with their roots attached to sunken driftwood. You can also grow terrestrial household plants such as Pothos and Lucky Bamboo by tying their roots to sunken driftwood. Many terrestrial herbs will develop water roots and I have successfully grown basil and mint hydroponically. You can practically create a weed garden by collecting weeds and mosses from outside for free and try them out.
