Jake's Second Try at Wabi Kusa Setups~Comments Welcome!~

What one do you like better? #1 or #2

This morning I took a little trip to a near by thriftstore "supercenter," to hopefully get my hands on some cool looking containers for some more Wabi Kusa setups. After spending a whopping dollar, I came home with a tan cereal bowl, a small chines tea cup, a glass serving container, and lots of insparation! So after scrounging around the yard (which is quite large) for some plants and such, I made these two setups. They are a little dirty, but hey thats what ya get for using stuff from your yard! Since my mini terrarium broke while I was cleaning it *sigh* one of the setups will be put there. The other I will find a place for, probably on a shelf.

Setup #1
Container: Tan cereal bowl
Substrate: Pool filter sand
Plants: Moss and a stem of grass from yard






 
Setup #2
Container: Glass serving dish
Substrate: Pool filter sand
Plants: Moss and small red plant from yard






 
Step By Step
1. Collect plants, rocks, container, ECT
2. Clean the rocks, container and sustrate (I washed the excess dirt from the roots of the plants too).
3. Add small layer of substrate to bottem of cleaned and dryed container
3. Place rocks in pleasing way in the middle of container
4. Add plants into/onto rocks
5. Carefully add water
Your done!
