Hi Keith, The second pic would make a fantastic little Aquascape
It would be rather challenging the land slip could be a natural cave.
Hi Keith, It could be done Maybe one day i will get round to doing something on this theme I like the look of trees & cave Scapes
I am curious about peoples' personal 'recipes' for creating the many layered wabi-kusa ball foundation forms to put plants in. Pics of that would also be quite helpful...
Now here is something that I think could be adapted for wabi-kusa....
Hi Randy, Well that got me thinking So i did this little one in a bubble With washing up liquid Not as stunning as your pic But its a start
Now that is truely magical!!! Thanks for the great interpretation! II bet you could create more magic with an up-side-down fish bowl. Thanks again greenfinger...you got the touch!
I like the new Avatar
Now that is using your imagination, how long did it last before the bubble burst?
Hi Randy, Keith, Thank you Well just having fun A fish bowl Now that's an idea Ho And the bubble only lasted about two minutes Edit The Avatar is how i look in the morning
Hi Randy, Sorry I missed this This is how i make a Wabi-Kusa Ball Start off with some substrate i used JBL Manado Cut up a old pair of stockings fill with some substrate to the size you require tie a knot put knot side down cover with moss then make little holes in the stocking and plant up with the plants you like Some pics
Thanks Greenfinger! That is highly informative to show how you do stuff. I know that there are different recipes for such stuff and it s helpful to know how a pro does it.
Using the mesh you get from shower puffs lined with moss then applied to a preprepared ball works very well too.
Most of the small bits and pieces Roy makes up use the basic materials, he has one small idea with mainly moss on nothing but broken up old clay house hold bricks.
Roy is the KIS expert
Hi, Thanks Randy Thank you Garuf Now that's a fab idea Shower puffs
And Thank you Keith, I love KIS The one with the broken brick is taking forever to look how i want it But will get there in the end
Imagine you've made a clay like claggy ball like those balls of bird food you see, next lay out your moss in a thin layer cut up your stems into inch or so long bits and add onto the moss, stick the ball in it and wrap it up so the stems are on the inside pop in the net and tie up tightly and bam, a pseudo wabi kusa. The real ones are a ball of straw and stones in the middle held together with clay and seeded with plants some times with most usually without, how they stay together structurally I can only guess but I would imagine thread or the roots.
