"Nature's Privilege" is aquascaped by Graeme Edwards from the UK Aquatic Plant Society (UKAPS) and is inspired by impressions from nature in the north-western part of England. It is the vigorous green carpet of Marsilea in the foreground and with a central rock formation where roots run from cracks in the rocks. Between the rock and the carpet smaller rock pieces are covered with Christmas moss. Centrally in the rock formation, groups with Polygonum and Hygrophila pinnatifida are placed, and Micorosorum and Bolbitis are attached to the roots. Small portions of Eleocharis simulate grass from nature. Hydrocotyle runs over the ground on the rear sides of the rock formation.

Note: Plant B on the drawing is Polygonum sp. which is no longer produced by Tropica.
