I wonder if something like this could work? It's what I'm thinking about doing to create a kind of swamp-moss-terrarium. :moss: :moss: :moss:

The wall in the middle would be completely water-permeable and merely meant to keep the substrate in the right-side half (I'd probably also have to use a water-permeable substrate, I guess?), and I would need to adjust the water height and regularly re-fill it, but apart from that, it should ideally be relatively easy to sustain?

@phseiff A very impressive image description! This is a great example of how to do an in depth breakdown for other users. Thanks so much for putting in the effort! :)


@Superfreq Thanks, I'm glad to hear that! I was kinda worried about this one, actually, since it's so long, and I don't want to exceed people's patience with my image descriptions 😅

@phseiff IMO more is always better, but if you're worried, you could always do a short desc, followed by a longer one with a label for each. I think most people expect it when seeing your posts though because yours are always so good.

My personal mastodon instance, where I toot about whatever I find tootworthy.

This instance's visual theme of trash and junk yards (you might have noticed the footer of the website, for example, which displays a junkyard) is inspired by the idea that "one person't trash is another person's treasure"; that people's ideas, thoughts and outcomes of hyperfixations can serve other people and inspire them, no matter how little they are, even if they didn't serve the one who had them in the first place.

In a way, this instance is a garbage can of every thought I have and had and never used, as well as photos of things that never served beyond the moment (such as food) and things I do that don't serve anything (like having plants).

If it's a thought or thing that I am weirdly proud of and it is mostly useless, it ends up here.
Welcome to my junk yard!

(There are also links to things I'm really proud of on my instance, though, as well as things that don't fit this categorization at all; it's not like everything consists of little things.)
