Cute little bowl, maybe add some moss or emersed stems? Ludwigia adapts well, might be a good choice.

Bogs are very grassy looking. Maybe you could put something like Carex dioica or a couple horsetails.

Nice! Do Anubias do ok in the air like that, as long as their roots are submerged?

Also, is that sand-capped dirt?

Actually, as long as they've transitioned, anubias don't even need to be in water. I've been growing an anubias petite in a self-watering pot of regular garden soil for about 6 months, and it's thriving. It did take about 2 months for it to transition, but I think the main issue was it learning to take nutrition from the soil and not just the water.

How it is here, the anubias might need to grow emersed leaves, but should be fine otherwise.
