Bayou/ swamp advice on re-creating this
I already posted this on the Gulf coast gardening forum. I want to make a Swamp/Bayou area re-creation in miniature. I have already bought the makings of swamp water, a miniature gator, some moss to drape on the trees. I just want some input to add to my plans. I know Cypress and Live oak trees are coastal natives, usually draped with the Spanish moss. What I am clueless on is what is missing? I realize there will be some Cottonmouth snakes also. Any plants to add? I don't mean to be ignorant or anything. I just know that I am missing out on things that grow in this situation, which the residents of the area see every day and could name off with no problem.
