Palm top bowl update 5/29

I came across a contest for mini aquaria and felt inspired to create and entry.
I figured I'd share it here. Let me know what you think

That is really, really cool. Nice job of creating a sense of depth even at this scale.

How do you care for something that size? Daily water changes? Any ferts?

Yeah I do daily(if i remember) water changes. Every once in awhile I'll put a drop of all-in-one fertilizer and excel. There's also a little laterite at the bottom.

Here's a couple pictures of a sort of immersed iwagumi type thing I started a few months ago. It's in one of those small cups they sell betas in. The moss is actually some type of terrestrial that I don't know the name of. I love how tiny it is. This is all tall as it grows. I grow it in terrariums and it only gets about 1/3 the height as it does grown immersed this way.
