A Wabi-Kusa inspired plant-scaping using aquatic plants. Plants are carefully planted into the moss and soil mixed, allowing them to grow and thrive in various environment. They prefer a wet and humid enclosure, frequent misting and bright light. Suitable to be kept as a terrarium or semi-submerged in water. Wabi-Kusa is a Japanese style of planting/arrangement where a selection of plants, usually semi-aquatic varieties are carefully planted in a moss or soil ball. The arrangement is allowed to grow naturally and one is to appreciate its natural beauty, along with its imperfect nature. Each island comes with a wooden plate (15cm diameter) as a basic base for growing, but a small glass tank or enclosed space is recommended. We do carry a 15x15cm glass cube in our store as well. Care: Mist a couple of times a day, making sure the moss and plants are kept moist. Provide a layer of clean water for the moss and plant arrange to settle in. Preferably placed in an area of constant temperature, away from strong winds and direct sun. Comes with a misting tool. Height: 15cm Width: 9cm

Plant Care: Bonsais require a shady, bright environment to thrive. An occasional soaking of the morning sun (once a week) will be beneficial. Mist twice weekly. Water every other day, about 1-2 tablespoonful of water around the plant. Mist more often in drier environments (air-conditioned rooms).
