    I couldn't setup an ADA shrimp tank like I wanted...so I decided to jump on the wabi kusa bandwagon.

    It's not a typical wabi kusa grown on a clay ball, it's just substrate - inspired by Jurijs Mit JS (great guy btw). I just used regular quality compost, dragon stone and the following plants from my aquarium/garden:

    Ludwigia Palustris
    Rotala Rotundifolia
    Eleocharis Acicularis
    Cryptocoryne Amicorum
    Hydrocotyle Tripartita
    Flame Moss
    Moss from a brick wall
    Random plant pot weed

    It has two open ends so I cling film both ends and mist it with aquarium water. It is under a wall lamp but I'm also going to use the windowsill.

    I'm completely new to this wabi kusa game but please let me know what you think. It could die tomorrow for all I know lol. Am I doing things right? Wrong? Let me know. I'll keep you posted.

    How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

    Beautiful! Any update? It's a cool container but open both ends may have made it pretty tough to keep humid, so you might have to try some diff species before striking it right
