Like the theme, roots and rocks, but might look better with some more hardscape. The hardscape seems a bit lost, in front of the dramatic backdrop. A plain backdrop and some more rocks, would be my input. 👍

So I think it’s come out alright there’s tonnes of little tissue culture stems in the back which should look cool when they grow out. I used the minced up moss method on the rocks and I have more on the way to tie to the wood (mainly to hide the superglue on the existing bit ha).

Looks cool. Can you attach some weeping moss on the background ledges ? Maybe even some pinnatifida? It would make it come alive, like a jagged cliff face with some vegetation growing here and there:

I have actually used the minced moss method on some of the background. And added more moss to the wood. Got some more coming to cover more of the wood and I want to mince abit more up to double my chances.
