Alice in Wonderland Theme

Soon I shall be planting my split 10gallon tank and I was hoping to go with an Alice in Wonderland forest theme. If anyone has any ideas on what plants to get, I would greatly appreciate it! I am already going to go with Dwarf Lillies and perhaps those banana plant things I've seen around (they are pretty funky looking.) But my goal is stranger looking plants. Here are a few pictures for inspiration, and I appreciate the help!!







EDIT: Sorry the pictures are so Huge! This slow computer won't let me make them smaller!

That is a really cool idea!
I was going to do a theme from the Spyro games,
for my marbled crowntail who is named Sparx (the dragondly, but I call him Shimmy). I ended up with a desert like theme though with river rocks. C:
And then for my females tank, an ocean theme with glowy green and other colored marbles/gems that reminded me of Kingdom Hearts.

Anyway,
try Christmas moss. It is pretty and nice looking for a foresty look.
You can make a wall with it.
And Marimo Moss balls.

You could do a moss attached to driftwood. Maybe silk flowers from a craft store, roses and the daisies (sp?). Someone posted a link on here before that had stone backgrounds that I think you use inside the tank, so if we can find that link you may be able to find something for the pathway.

Moss and marimo balls. If you want some flowers you could add a few silk plants.

You could get some craft mesh and cut out shapes to look like lawn shrubs and attach moss to it.

Ooo that's a good idea. I was hoping for more real plant ideas but I'm not totally against mixing in silk plants.

Thanks, I'll look up Christmas Moss! And your tanks sound like they ended up looking pretty nice!

the top left tree covered in the vine, you could find a bit of drift wood and wrap (and secure) moss to it ORRRRRRRRRRR

maybe get some small chicken wire/mesh and shape the "hedge animals" and again with the moss :) that way you can make them as big or as little as you want :)
