Cubicle - Low Tech

So, I have an extra bag of amazonia aqua soil, and a new cube at work with plenty of space to add some GREEN to my work area. I am not by a window unfortunately so just the regular office flourescent lighting is all I have to work with.

My idea would be to get some various shape vases/bowls/ etc. .. and use my leftover aquasoil as substrate in these. Good idea to use this substrate this way? Bad idea?

Not planning on adding any fish... just want some green. Was thinking of growing some moss or other low light needs plants.

A Collection of Vases

Inspiration hopefully.
This is so do-able. Aquasoil is good.
Would help a lot if you can provide light, he he, desk lamp?
