i was thinking of doing something like it, but on a bigger scale outdoors. i have some rotala rotundifolia and sunset hygro that won't have a home after i move, i was thinking of throwing them into a large container outside with some tiger lotus and this tall spikey bog plant my mom has that's growing like freaking crazy in her pond. maybe put some whiteclouds or killifish in it.

That would be very interesting to see actually. When you attempt post some pics. I think it would be the same technique as with the smaller version like shown in the link

i just don't understand why you have to roll the soil into a ball? why can't you just put a layer in the bottom?
