Update is snaisland is going well. I see springtails. Didn't know I had those! I will get a recent pic. I need to do a heavy trimming.
Emersed pennywort recipe:
Put some stems of pennywort with roots in some very wet soil in a small container. Mist generously. Cover with some plastic. Mist daily until emersed growth occurs. Transfer to flower pot, paludarium, or wherever.
