My Little Plant Bowl...

Here's an update on my Walstad bowl. The crypts never really grew, but surprisingly the plants considered to be "high-tech" like rotala and eleocharis just took off. I wish my rotala would grow up and out of the water, but it seems content to spread out as opposed to growing upwards...




(this snail makes the bowl look small, but it's just a HUGE pond snail. around 4x the size of any of the others)

That's a cool bowl! The red color of the rotala make it look like a baseball (best sport in the world). What are the specs? I want to make a carpet in my 2 gallon jar.

LOL, I can actually see that! There isn't really anything running on it besides a 13 watt lamp. It is capped dirt though. Bowls really aren't too hard to carpet since there is so little area on the bottom...
