Thanks! I will add those that aren't already up.Ps. To add to your list.
Rotala rotundifolia variants have all worked for me if a little scruffy by their nature.
All the tropica produced hygrophila will happily grow this way and is a good way to get stems for wabi kusa.
P prospinca “mermaid weed” gets real tall
Mini Christmas moss
I use any clear box with a lid I can find and leave it on the windowsill. Will move over to a led set up eventually.
Pretty much 100%, so that all the <"plants are beaded with water">. The problem, in the winter, is that cold air is saturated with very little water, so if that cool, wet air warms up the <"%RH falls really quickly">.for emersed growing of aquatics plants using Courtney's technique, or a propogator as I plan to - what sort of level of humdity is ideal for inside the box/propagator?
That should work pretty well. <"Fogging units"> are used a lot in commercial plant propagation units.I'll be using an ultrasonic mister to try and keep the humidity up inside the propagator
I have PLENTY if you need to get yourself going.Thanks Courtney, I’ll have to source some and get a starter culture on the go. How often do you need to add them to your propagator?

Initially I added some a few times and they kept dwindling, not really sure why. But a couple months ago I added some and the population has maintained and I haven't had to add any more. Possibly there is more of a food source? Not sure.
I did consider this but I didn't want to introduce mold that was otherwise not there and potentially spread it. Also didn't want them to take their eyes off the prize haha.Could you not add the rice grains directly to the propagator to sustain them, or is that likely to cause more issues?
I've never actually used coconut coir for anything so I'm not sure what it's like. I just used seedling compost because there was already some in a container growing some failed Monte Carlo.Also when you say you found a compost substrate to be best for them, does it need to be a particular type, or would something like coconut coir work okay?
