I am kicking around the idea of making a few small water gardens in gallon jars, pitchers etc.

Something like this....

Thumb of 2014-10-03/klc/0c75f3 Thumb of 2014-10-03/klc/21b87d

I'm looking for reliable sources to purchase some very small water lilies etc....anyone have any ideas??

Thank You!
I hate losing plants....I know they are "just plants" but when you nurse them along and baby them and get them to grow, bloom, and be pretty and they die....it's like losing a friend..... Crying

Dauben's the smallest waterlily I've grown, and it's available everywhere, including my favorite aquatics provider, texaswaterlilies.com. I know there are other miniatures available, but I don't have any experience with them. I'll ask around with my nursery sources. Hopefully someone else here has some ideas.

Now, if you happen to have a N. thermarum or something, we may need to have a talk...
