My first Wabi Kusa

Just wanted to share this pic of my first Wabi-Kusa. I've been wanting to make one of these for a while now and finally got to it. This is how it came out. I think I'm going to try making some smaller ones for my nano tanks.

Here's a couple of pics from the sides. I'll try and post some better ones under descent lighting. I followed someone else's recipe for this here in the forum. I froze the amazonia soil in a stocking which worked great. It made it easy to wrap the sphagnum moss around the ball. Once the ball was at room temp I added the plants. ( DO NOT add the plants while the ball is still frozen!) Don't ask me how I know. Duh!!!! These are the plants I used

Dwarf Lobelia Cardinalis
Ludwigia (mini red)
Ludwigia repens
Hygro Polysperma

I'm going to keep it in my emesed tank for a while to let the plants take root.
I'll post more pics as it matures. Thanks for the comments.
