Chicago Aquatic Plant Society - Wabi-kusa Workshop


Our next event will be a Wabi-kusa Workshop to be held on March 18 from 1:30 - 3:30 at the Garfield Conservatory, 300 N. Central Park Avenue, Chicago, IL.

Wabi-kusa are balls of substrate that are covered with plants that are grown in their terrestrial form. These substrate balls are placed directly into a small glass container with some water and then allowed to grow naturally. Substrate ball materials and aquatic plants will be provided along with instruction on how to create and care for this low maintenance living piece of art. Please bring your own container or dish to hold the wabi-kusa when completed.

Entrance to the event is $5 or free for members who have already paid the annual club dues ($15/year). The entrance fee covers the creation of one wabi-kusa ball with plants.

Please RSVP at

Join us for one of our most fun events of the year!

***UPDATE*** A photo contest will also be announced at the workshop with a winning prize of $100 for the adult and $50 for kids wabikusa entries. Rules will be discussed at the workshop. We will also have a silent auction during the workshop where you can bid of donations from our sponsors. Following the workshop, members who have paid their dues will have an opportunity to get a "behind the scenes" tour of Garfield Conservatory from one of our members.
