That would be really nice for an office desk. Do you keep a lid on it normally? What about light?

Yeah the lid is mostly on, and it sits in the middle of the living room on the coffee table. It doesn't have it's own light as the plants are all low light species. The side with the orchid flowering faces french doors 6 feet away.

I need want to order some ADA tweezers and scissors, so in for a penny in for a pound, thinking to get one of these too!

Is it the S (16cm high) or the M (23cm high?) and is that the 15x15 or the 20x20 glass air?

Also, what is a good source to figure out what I can grow on it - apart from mosses, Anubias and Buce?

Good write up on the process explaining how different heights are good for different types of plant on Aqua Journal here.

May depend on your humidity levels? I live in a area with very low humidity and my suspicion is that these won't even survive unless enclosed. Yet to be tested however.
