I was planting up some bogwood this afternoon ad got wondering if there's a market for this type of thing fully planted? I could make small ones or big ones! This one is 3kg of wood with 1x devils ivy, 2 mosses and 4 bromilliad pups! Would love some opinions!





Cheers!

Honest truth, Josh? I prefer to plant my own tanks and (often!) make my own mistakes. :lol2:

Having said that, I've seen so many people on here ask about plant growing that I think you might be on to something for people who want to grow stuff but don't have a clue.

They look good mate, may I ask how old the brom pups are though? They look vefy small to have been removed, or is that just the picture?

I'll be honest mate, i've done this before at the shows, and although you sell a few most people prefer to do it it's self. its getting harder to shift planted tanks to.

I will also echo the above, the brom pups looks very small. Hows the drainage in wood like that, as I would be afraid of water build up in the holes causing the brom to rot.

I know what you mean about planet tanks in general! Not the market there used to be! These brims are doing great in a mates salamander tank, the mount holes are drilled all the way though and packed with moss so excess water can run out, so they are never to dry or too wet! As I said these were small as pups go as I was new to broms! But they did all survive and do great! With more exspiriancen I now allow to grow bigger before separating :)

Yer a few years ago, Planted tanks sold quickly, now thats not the case as more people are getting involved.

Glad to hear they are doing well though.
