Welcome to Planted Space, a new and growing community of gardeners, horticulturalists, and aquascapers from around the world. Whether you're the casual home gardener, the landscaping designer, the vivarium zookeeper, or just looking to add a little green to your space, you will find plenty of information and inspiration on this site.  

At Planted Space, we hope to inspire by example. Our plants are organized by the space, e.g. an indoor living room, an outdoor flower garden, or an aquarium tank.  Each week, we feature a "Planted Space," and show you how to design, set up, and maintain your planted spaces. Be sure to subscribe to our latest articles by RSS.

To make the most out of Planted Space, please join our community and share your planted spaces with the rest us. Our featured spaces are often selected from fellow members' photo journals right here in the forums. So stop by and create a journal thread of your own to document your progress, ask questions, and get feedback!
