Default My Viv is coming together

This is still a work in progress but this is my Viv so far. I just planted it, and it still looks pretty bare. I need to get something for the back right wall to help cover it, any suggestions?

This viv is 60" long, 22" deep and 26" high. The parts came in for my doors but they were all wrong so i am waiting on that now.

That's a very nice looking start! I can't wait to see when it gets finished. What are you using for the doors?

Yes, yes it is. Great job! It will look completely different once the plants grow in (in a good way!).

I totaly dig this one! If you want the back to get covered , I highly recomend some Marcgravia! Those are going to let your tank pop!

I personaly would also add 1-3 big (red) bromeliads.

Yes, mounting a couple bigger Neos on the ghostwood would give a little shade/cover for the frogs, as well as giving visual depth.

pin your broms onto the cork background. Broms won't stay on loose thin driftwood.

Love the composition of this viv my friend!

If you want some really nice vining plants for that background, I'd recommend creeping fig or oakleaf creeping fig. You'll need to be patient with them, as it'll take a year or so for them to start vining, but totally worth it.

Also, the Pilea Aluminum you have are some of my favorites. They tend to get long and stringy in vivs if not pruned. Trims the stems every month of so and the leaves will split and create two new stems. They look a lot nicer when they get bushy!
