Time can do amazing things

I’m going to change things up a bit for this post.  Rather than an aquarium build, tip or deal I’m going for a little retrospective piece.

I was browsing through some old photos and I came across this little gem:

See that little plant on the right sitting on the driftwood?  That’s one of those little java ferns you can buy in various pet shops that comes packaged in a plastic box with some sort of gel in it.

Not very impressive I know.  Well how about this shot I just took today:

And that is a wider shot of the same log I took today.  I did add some java moss to the log, which is the little bits you see mixed in with the plant. Otherwise, that all came from the sad little fern in the first picture.

I’ve also trimmed and culled that plant many times in the past year or so.  I’ve removed tons of daughter plants cut off leaves, you name it.  I can’t get the thing to stop growing now.

I kind of forgot the whole thing started from a little twig about a year and a half ago.
