Looks great! Any updates on the plants?
Well for about a week or two the Selaginela deteriorated and I went back to the internet to look what I was doing wrong and I read this article that strictly implies that there should be no standing/still water at the bottom. So I went and re-did everything and this time I made sure that I started everything dry or slightly moist and that I made sure I had about an inch or so of activated charcoal, then changed the plants inside with moisture loving and easy to grow ones. Here's what it looks like now and this is just day 1...

Give us a countdown and an opportunity to share with you if it dies.
It was about to die so I went and re-did everything, so here it is again on day 1 but this time I made everything dry or slightly moist from the start so that I can control the condensation.

Can very tough plants survive in an enclosed system?
Well it is for some that is why you need to choose the plants carefully, there's not much to choose from but you can still make it worthwhile with landscaping ideas in such a small space.

I think you could try streptocarpus. It's a big risk, but well worth it. No direct sunlight. Looks very neat and enchanting, @Jasoncassanova !

I don't think we have that kind of plant here in the Philippines. I haven't seen it before, is it a family of orchids?
