Not sure where to post so I posted here and i journal hope that's OK?
While most of these are not as beautiful as the Japanese versions, I've really enjoyed experimenting with the concept and its great for producing little mini plant groups/habitats. They are grown in an aquarium with very high humidity. And they seem to adjust to full submersed very well.

Yeah it seems to work really well for pushing or coddling plants along. I have one with some Utricularia graminifolia that I'm trying to get going. The high light really gets things growing and you never have problems with algae
Substrate is just muddy dirt I collected, which is part of the trick because you want a substrate that holds together but isn't too dense.

Well I guess the the trick is to let them grow emersed for a while allow the plant roots and moss to establish creating a "matrix" that doesn't get muddy.
When I first make the Wabi's and set them on thier shelf they do "leak" a little muddy water.
