Not sure what you call this. I started an emersed setup with some eleocharis parvula. This is a very tiny bowl...just scaped it with a rock to add some character. Starting to fill in nicely. Ps.. The last pic is how I started it in the middle
Of summer. I left it outside and it died back when it got flooded with rain. Thought it would never grow. Then one day. It took off. Now that I have it inside it's just loving life.

Nice start, should look real nice when it grows in.
What are you using for light?
10 watt cfl in a desk lamp.

some bad news... this container cracked!:icon_cry: super bummed.
water was leaking from it..

but I am going to look for another little glass bowl and move it into there. this sucks because it just started to send out runners...

Weird, wonder why it cracked ... think the lamp light made it hot enough to compromise the glass or something?
I'm really not sure. It could have had a small crack that I didn't notice. This is actually a vase, went to the craft store and bought another one. But I'm going to try and fix it first with some glass glue. I'll also raise the light just in case it gets too hot like you said.

I woke up this morning and found several new leaves popping through. Hopefully I won't have to re-do it. I'd rather not disturb the plant.
