Making the tree


Posted on 3rd July 2010 by King7 in Landscaping

After soaking and boiling the driftwood for a month, it is time to put it together.  In order to make the “tree”, I had to do some customization.  I did some cutting and gluing to create a section where I can grow the moss.  I will be tying the Singapore moss to a mesh net and then tying the net to the branches on the “tree”.

Here is a picture of the “tree” prior to the gluing:

Here is the picture of the “tree” after gluing all the pieces together:

Here is a rough draft of the layout:  (the paper towel is about the size of the tank.  My main concern is that the tree is too tall.)

If all goes well, the tank will get setup tomorrow.  I’m tired of waiting for someone to have some UG for sale, so I’m just going to use dwarf hair grass in its place for now.  I figure the dwarf hair grass will be easy to take out later.

Will be making another visit to AFA today.  Got a wedding to attend in the city so can’t pass up on another opportunity to spend money 🙂  (not to mention that I got a GC from my cousin)
