this last few days i have been bored and found a piece of glass from a picture frame and it popped into my head that i could cut is myself and make a little wabi kusa which i have wanted to try for a while now. The glass cutting was the hard part. i used a tile cutter so score the surface where i marked out with marker pen i then placed 2 cocktail sticks under the the score line and pressed each side and it snapped along the line(thankfully ) i then spent the next day siliconing it together.
in the back left hand corner will be utricularia sandersoni which is a carnivorious plant and a relation to UG
next i siliconed a corner off so that it was watertight. and today i have put all the bits together in the tank. this is again pebbles from the garden, twigs and sand. i then added some moss which i also got from the garden. and here is what i have so far. it only took about 30mins to collect and put together. beats bordem
you can see that there is 2 tiers. the second tier done by sandwiching the moss between the siliconed piece of plastic and another bit the same so it sit's higher (hard to explain)
this shows the corner i put in using thin clear plastic which you get in printing paper, which is A4 size but pretty usefull
and thats one of the mosses i found which it pretty interesting
i am not really sure if you can call this an wabi kusa but what do you call it?
