My first Kusamono

Ok, I don’t have a clue how to cultivate Kusamono’s but they always fascinate me. The sweet little pots contain this delicate tiny flowers, the freshness they transmit, the youth and grace they possess, although after all, it’s only weed!
I decided to give it a tray and transplant some of the weed (Japanese = kusa) that I have in the garden in small pots. The pots are really nothing special and I am looking forward to purchase some new one on the next Bonsai workshop in the upcoming months.
Back to the topic: my biggest concern was the soil. Should I use Akadama? Or Keto will be better? Or maybe just the same soil from the garden? Well, I don’t know I used all three and will figure out how the Kusamonos will progress.
What do you think? Can you give me any advice?
