    Warm weather has started plenty of plants at garden shop and I am ready to go. I will do a step by step Journal as I go plus, plenty of Photos.

    Because the way the Jebo Bow front is made it will be easier to make backing shape in sections and finish every thing else in the tank, I am very glad I have done the 5ft Terrascape to learn from.

    Well that is the theory as you all know the practical part can change as you go along.

    The Substrate will be a mix of a very good potting soil with a few extras added in. It will be sitting on a 10-15mm base of fine washed Scoria, this will give me a perfect drainage when watering

    For mossy areas I will dig in area and replace it with a mix of Spaghnam moss, chopped Oak leaves and, chopped coconut fiber. After I have finished the planting a thin layer of the finely sieved old council mulch same as I used for the 5ft Terrarium.

    These are some of the plants I could be using I have lost plenty reason not suitable or too small. When I was in hospital I lost a few. I did find by laying the Coconut fiber sheet and some Sphagnum Moss they were watered from the bottom of the pot, I also found out some do not like the fert I was using.

    This is the top center support causing me to make most of it in sections and assemble as I go along.

    Most of the plants I can get the growers just add a name to well know varieties, I have seen the same plant with a different variety name.

    Another thought make up as much as possible out of the tank then cut it into sections back into the tank to finish it off. once the backing plants get established the joints will never be seen.
