Thanks Newman! You've given me some great suggestions. I'm regretting the choice of my substrate, I don't like the look of the pebbles at all right now but maybe once I get plants growing it will start to look better.
I've got the bulbs planted and tomorrow I'll be tying some moss to two small pieces of DW. Hopefully I get at least half of the bulbs to grow. More pictures tomorrow.
So far this has been an interesting experiment. I'm already thinking of ways I could improve a planted bowl if I were to start over. It's so hard to have patience sometimes! Especially with a fiancé prodding me to put something that moves in it lol
