    Hi

    Our glass oven broke and so now we have a lovely glass bowl probably close to about 10L. Thinking about growing a water plant of some description. Any ideas?

    If it's the same as mine, it's like this:

    Thanks, Tas, now I see, my mother in law has one. Nice dinner by the way! Is it roast chook?

    As for planting it, I'm trying to think of something which would show off the roots throught the glass, but all I'm getting is ant farms!

    I think a water plant would be a great idea, but its outside my experience. There's an article in the Nov/Dec Organic Gardener, which is taken from "Edible Water Gardens - Growing Waterplants for Food and Profit" by Nick Romanowski, expected release Oct 2007, but it only talks about ponds, not pots. I'd love to grow water chestnuts!

    If you'd like me to scan the article, let me know.

    Otherwise, maybe ask at your local nursery or community garden.
