My emersed setups

Hi Guys,

This emersed setup thing is really addictive. I tried another emersed setup, this time with the clay found on the banks of lakes. I purchased a grass like succulent plant which needs high moisture, for this. Here's how it looks. This is about two weeks old.

This tub has One Anubia, one fern, one crypt parva, one crypt wendtii, few cuttings of mc, a clump of fissidens moss, few cuttings of pelia moss and some terrestrial moss growing in my garden.

Update. :) ferns growing well. Trying to dose macro nutrients let's see how they react. Experimenting. Does anyone have experience with ferts dosing in emersed?

no need to give ferts now. let them settle now. then if you want something super results you may try.
i have never given anything to my emersed setups rather than misting .
