    Aqua Design Amano Wabi-Kusa

    Hey guys, here is my Wabi-Kusa. The vase and light are ADA but I had to make the ball myself.










    A wabi-kusa is a ball of media wrapped in moss with plants growing on it, sat in a vase of water and they originated in Japan. The light is a Branch Light and is made just for this. It uses a 60 watt par16 halogen bulb but I just ordered a 6 watt par16 CREE LED bulb to replace it with.

    me thinks you should just slap some drosera in there....doesnt have to be a rare one....spathulata will do. NICE WORK! i didnt know that ADA made wabi-kusa vases....thought it was only a DoAqua thing.

    Par16 is the size of the bulb (a little spotlight) and CREE is a company that makes high power LED's.

    Amphirion, technically it is Do!Aqua but it's just another branch of the same company. Same thing to me lol.

    It's got half a cup of aquasoil inside, so that ball is full of ammonia ;P No drosera for this vase.

    RSS has been growing various utrics on Aquasoil for a while. I've also started to play with some and most are growing very well...
