Question What to do With This?

Hello PTF!

After tearing down my "nano vase riparium" (because it didnt turn out as planed) I have a left over vase and lighting that I would like to turn in to something awsome. The catch is that I want it to be as cheap as possible! With no filter! I was thinking of making a DIY rock wall, with plants growing out, but I am open to suggestions!
Stuff I have

Tank: Tall vase
Lighting: 26w CF clip on light
Subtrate: PFS and maybe soil
ECT: Airator, Misc aquarium supplys.



Any ideas?

If you didn't want to do something with water. You could take the sub. out and add long fiber sphagnum moss in a put a Venus Flytrap in it.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I think that Venus Fly Traps are alittle to hard to care for. Thanks!

yeah i have the same vase too! haha my mom would never let me use it though.... im cool like that... i think you should throw in some stems and have them grow out emersed. I have a plastic vase like that with Lindernia parviflora growing out, and it flowers constantly and looks really cool.
