In this aquascape from the ADA Gallery in Niigata, we immediately see the horizontal expanse that is typical of the classic Japanese Iwagumi. Plant choice, is, as always, limited to a selection of common hues. Here, bushes of Blyxa japonica sprout from the bottom crevices of the rocks, while an even carpet of Glossostigma elatinoides covers the horizontal plains. The central feature is the selection of Manten stones, carefully arranged in a dramatic, yet natural poise.
