This display showcases three very beautiful wabi kusa.

Each wabi kusa displays impressive healthy growth. Flowering stems mixed amongst health mosses is wonderful to see.

I struggle to find integration between the three wabi kusa and their container - or even each other for that matter.

These wabi kusa share a vessel but feel isolated from one another.

The impressive moss growth gives the impression that these wabi kusa were possibly grown elsewhere and then set into this vessel for documentation. This especially feels true for the rightmost wabi kusa whose stems do not interact with the light source above.

Otherwise this is a pleasant arrangement of three healthy wabi kusa. As isolated elements the vessel each wabi kusa they all are beautiful. That aside when placed together they lack visual cooperation.

Very interesting concept of having Wabi Kusas in the Bonsai pot and nice healthy growth! I like the use of different types of stems but would have liked to see something that could provide a bit more height. Well done!

This just brings a smile to my face! It is light and airy and is being allowed to do its own thing. Just what a Wabi Kusa should be!

Plants look lush. However adding hardscape a little leaf color and variation in texture would have added a lot to the arrangement.
