How would you plant this?

Nice scape, love the root detail. Maybe some monte carlo attached to the hardscape at the front, trailing down over the rocks, and pogostemon gayi at the back swaying in the flow.

My take would be some buce on the rock, bolbitis and java fern in the middle layer and perhaps some emergent growth if possible on the wood top left. I've just set a new tank up which is quite similar but minus the rock and emergent growth, it looks good to me.

nice use of the wood to make up a 'trunk/root', I'll throw a curve ball rather than going down the traditional epiphyte route (which would still look amazing in this scape)

i think this would look brilliant as a black water scape, leaf litter, pods, tannins, floaters, etc....

+1 to this! Leaf litter and twigs on the sand with a couple of small random patches of Lilaeopsis Brasiliensis here and there.

I'd still add all the epiphites over the rocks, along with some long grassy plants (e.g. Potamogeton Gayi or Crinum Calamistratum etc) behind the wood that will trail across the surface as @SRP3006 suggests, and maybe a bunch of trident or needle leaf coming out in the gap to the left of the main trunks, and maybe a hanging pot of emersed grasses hidden behind the trunks (?).

Fantastic hardscape incidentally @Tim Harrison
