Plant Terrarium

Grow your plants in this mini terrarium!
When I think of a terrarium the only image that comes to my mind are reptiles hidden among branches and bushes of their glassy home. But it turned out that terrariums are also ideal for keeping indoor plants with a minimum of care and mess. The humidity inside these containers is higher that’s why even when you forget about watering the plants can survive.

One of the ways you can built a Plant Terrarium was shown on CountryLiving but the original idea comes from C J Hughes of He built his little indoor greenhouse in Victorian style which adds a lot of character to the room.

If your plants aren’t eager to flourish the terrarium might be the solution. Some time ago we also presented some easy to keep plants, in case you are looking for those have a look at Succulent In A Jar and Modern Zen Gardens.

Once you have a home garden you can boast of, please do, by sending photos to our website.
