Emersed Iwagumi

Ive been growing HC emersed in a couple small plastic containers for awhile, and I seen this cool terrarium thingy at target so I grabbed it to fancy up my operation lol. I have it under some t5's right now, if things start to grow in good, I'm gonna move it to my window shelf with some other plants and see how it does with a little sun. Check it out.
There's also some glosso and quadrafolia mixed in in some areas.











It doesn't hold water above that black bottom frame, so I soaked the substrate good, and will mist daily. Substrate is peat mixed with miracle grow organic potting soil, with fluval stratum to cap it off for looks.

Hopefully it fills in nice.

How much was the terrarium? Reminds me of one Ikea sells. I like it more, actually!

Could we also get the dimensions?

Its 13" x 7" x 8"h, perfect for a little shelf or desk, prob not great for any stem plants though.

Checked two Targets for this, neither were on clearance may just spend the extra $10 cause it's so versatile.

Grew in nicely, just moved into my window to see how it does with just sun.

Ikea sells the same thing pretty much for $20.

I kinda like the top doors better on the ikea version.
