Attempting a Water Sprite...BUSH

I had some time on my hands today. I made a pretty thingamabob and stuck water sprite in the holes. I will be filling in the empty spaces over time to give it a nice full effect. I want a bushy water sprite bush for my bare bottom tank; I hate having it float everywhere. Fingers crossed this works!

That's a cool idea! It will look nice with full of water sprite. I thought about making something like that for moss but have never ended up doing yet :P

I might have to try that! I keep having to trim back my water sprite. Even the cuttings are sprouting new roots & "babies".

At least it's easy to propagate! Yay free plants! I literally took my water sprite plants and ripped it to shreds. That was two weeks ago and now I have enough to start this "bush." There's still more I haven't stuck in the thingymabob.

What a spiffy idea! I envy those of you who are crafty...in a good way.

I have taken those black plastic pots used for aquatic plants and used them in much the same way...stuffing stems in the little slits. But yours is a much better way. Thanks for sharing!
