Default Gordan cress wall + lots of silicone

Did one test panel, let it cure, then soaked it.
It stayed up fully saturated so pressed forward.
On the bottom Iíll have an inverted flat with sculpted grodan ( more natural?) for moss and standard Masdevallias, making it easy to remove for maintenance. It actually very therapeutic sculpting it with an exacto knife. Here is a separate thread on that matter, which I probably add more specifics to. Grodan / Rockwool Wall Trial

NOTE* I used gloves and a mask AND goggles when handling the dry grodan and that dealing much noxious silicone vapor. Take care of your self. Gloves are sufficient for wet grodan, as the fibers can irritate your skin.

Yes, this is my build, getting pretty green. Still making adjustments but Iím happy itís reflecting the in situ environment well. Iíll detail win a few weeks after I get some more plants in and feel like itís stable. Hopefully people will be able to learn and be inspired from the different things I tried out and the think that I should have done in hindsight. This is my second build and happy to say that these can be very reasonably priced with some resourcefulness and patience.

Note: don't get physan 20 anywhere near any moss you value. I'm set back a few months after treating some plants that were heading into the enclosure live and learn.
