        I want some, I think it would look neat in Vlad's deserty tank (it is cactus, after all). Last time I went to Hobby Lobby (over the summer, I think?) looking for it, I couldn't find any Went to like three stores too.

        I love the tree look Most people use moss for trees but I love the actual leaves.

              I love its shape.....tall and not too wide. All of my projects end up bigger than anticipated....great job on sizing.

                    That's pretty cool. What did you use to attach the plants to the wood? It looks like plant weights but I'm not sure.

                      Plant anchors Didn't feel like tying with a sewing thread

                        Haha. I tied mine with fish wire once and it was just a total pain in the butt. Now in just use a loose rubber band and after about a month, the plant is anchored and the rubber band breaks.

                        I never thought to use plant anchors though, so I may do that next time!

                          I got the idea from Matt. I will never go back tying with string again...such a pain.

                            That looks cool AP I think one with Petite would be awesome too, glad to help with the anchors again.
