Wabi-Kusas and then some


So I really love growing these things. I really didn't know where to post but I guess "Plants" is the best choice. I guess that the main part of this is the interesting combination of plants growing together. I have used some of these submerged but of course not all plants will work... Of course I may have mis ID'd some, I can't remember everything I've used. These are all at least several months old and grown mostly emersed.
More to come...
A little rushed Hurricane Sandy may cut power!

I love what you're doing here, cool project, and very creative! My only critique would be maybe use fewer species of moss per Wabi and go for a "cleaner" look... though I guess that's not exactly what you're trying to do, hahaha. May I ask, where did you get the Selaginella, and do you know what species it is?

This would be awesome to try like you're doing. I've only made 3, but never tried using bog plants instead of aquatics. Wonder if you could make a bunch at a time by using a muffin tin...

I really like the ones you made on logs, I might have to try something like this with some cool bog and air plants!
