This photo was taken on Sep 8, 2009, just one month after the tank was set up; by late Spring this year, the Wisteria was a mess, due to my failure to keep it pruned weekly.
So assuming I can get my wisteria to grow like it's supposed to (remember my recent CO2? post), how about wisteria in the corners and hygro along the edges? I'll be using two separate fixtures, so that should help with light reaching the lower leaves.
