    Thank for your answers and advices! So I will wait as you both tell me to do! =)

    Yes, I will be in the Country side, and I'm sure I will see a lot of mosses and beautiful landscapes! :)

    Never the less, I'm still here to look at all of your fantastic WB! :)

    You will learn plenty by observing nature you can see what plants go together very easily.

    If its legal collect as much as you can.

    Yes, I like to look at natural Earth landscapes and how plants are growing in the nature, on which soil, with which light...

    I only collect when it is legal! :)

    For the Wabi-Kusa, I will try to use a small Hydrocotyle (from my first aquascape), Java moss and I don't remember the name of the plant in my second aquascape! x). I will try to see if it can live with only humidity! Not sure about that, I have to test for the last one! =)

    Hi Glom, Humidity. I have trouble with this too :( No two days are the same over here :( One way is to use a cover over the top of the W-K during the cooler nights and open during the day :confused: Some days the plants look ok -- Then other days :mad: not so good :( the cover go's back on :( Hydro & Java moss look good together the Hydro will need a lot of trimming though ;)

    Hi everyone!


    I've finaly found the name of the plant I was talking about: Lilaeopsis novae zelandiae. :cool:

    I will try to see if it can live only with humidity. But I can assure you it's really easy to maintain in aquascape tank! :D
    I've also saw that my Internet's shop for all aquascaping's objects has now likewise some Wabi-Kusa/Kokedama objects! That's interesting! I will try to do everything hand-made for my first Wabi-Kusa, because it's look very funny, but if I can maintain it, why not new plants for a next one? ^^

    I have a question, not only Wabi-Kusa, but I saw some flowers on this plant and also on my Hydrocotyle, is it possible? Or I think it's flower and it's actually something else? :confused:

    I was trying to upload a picture from my two aquascape in order to show them to you but it hasn't worked... :culpability:

    So, I'm sorry, but here a link where you can see my both aquascapes together (at the bottom of the page) :) :

    Can you run through a step by step of exactly what you did, it could be something you are doing or a forum technical concern.

    This is what I did.
    1 found photo ASW
    2 clicked on photo and "saved Image as"
    3 opened photo in Photoshop and adjusted as required.
    4 Saved photo in my Pictures library.
    5 opened Photo Bucket.
    6 loaded photo and clicked copied link.
    7 back to WK and posted photo bucket link
    8 all finished and clicked Submit reply.

    Hi everyone!

    I tried to do my first Wabi-Kusa yesterday... Well it's completly awfull.... :(:(

    I dont know from where comes the problem? Is it because I used unhealthy and tiny plants? :confused:
    Or just because I'm not good for planting? And that is for sure! ^^'

    hi glom :)

    you say completely awful? remember that once the plants start to grow they will start looking better :D

    do you have any pictures?, so we can help with constructive criticism.

    I fully agree with Jason, post photos please, plus a step by step from the time you got the plants until now.

    It could be the plants if they were all unhealthy in the first place, not handled or planted correctly, after planting not properly treated before and after planting.

    All of that is highly unlikely.
