If you ever get tired of the houseplant on top, you could put some subwassertang on top. When grown emersed, it changes to a fern that is completely different from its submersed form. Might be interesting.

The vase is lovely, by the way. Great job!

Just tucked the roots in some crevices of the wood. Put a rubber band to hold it for a few days but now it can stand on it's own. Pretty good root growth.

Good look with the vase! let us see some pictures when you're done!

cool, i thought it might have been but wasnt sure on the ability of emersed plants to hold their own, i will have to try this!

and thanks, i have started making a journal in the tank journal section but so far all i have is a picture of the actual bowl/vase, will update it tomorrow when i get my wood

A small dwarf Anubias nana, might be worked in near the surface! They say they can live with leaves out of the water, as long as the roots are submersed!

2 Month update!!!!

The jar has matured incredibly fast. It's a jungle now! I'm seeing planaria swimming all over and the guppies just love to hunt it. The amano shrimp are just thriving and the emersed arrow leaf is just exploding, sending roots and leaves like crazy. This set up has been so satisfying!

Loving the pennywort growth. Not so much a jungle but more of a nice filled in look.

This is beautiful, I may be inspired to begin a vase of my own. I have a small group of cherry shrimp the need a home other than the breeder trap to separate them from my crs in my 5g

It does!? Oh, my... I might have to break off a bit from my bunch and try this out for myself. Thank you for the interesting tidbit!

This vase is giving me some good ideas for how to use my spare little Mr Aqua tank as an ornament on my dresser. I think I have an interesting piece of driftwood that would sit half-in/half-out very well.

Due to photobuckets new bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my photos helpful.

Looks great! I hope the 5G jar I'm working on right now turns out that well.
