    Wood is maybe much. Liked it before you added the wood. I would just have added some Vallis at the back to grow nice tall and thick like a background.

    Lol - welcome to MTS ...

    Nice progression, that was some really big steps in the last 60 days. Now the art of letting it be and focusing on plant selection and growth starts.

    @hencoloots, I like the rock/wood arrangement as it is, as Ferdie said, few more plants now (at back and sides?) lokking very nice

    Those rams are really pretty.
