Hi all.

I have been super keen on Wabi-Kusas lately and took the oportunity to make some while trimming my slowtech scape. I was unable to find a satisfactory guide on making clay media, so I wrapped sphagnum moss into a ball, coated it in whatever weedy moss I have in my tank and added some plants. Some like hygrophila already wilted somewhat but will hopefully bounce back. Here are some pictures of the moss balls:

Plants include:
Crypt wendtii green
Buce wavy green
Anubais barteri
Java fern
Hygrophila pinnitafida
Micro swords
Some stem, can't remember the name

I put the balls in 1cm of water in a closed aquarium under LED light to acclimate the plants to emersed growing. Quite excited for the results!
