Terrariums are not new... but finding new vessels to plant them in never gets old! Barb Rosen asked the members in our Garden Charmers Group, check us out here: ( https://www.facebook.com/thegardencharmers ) to share some posts on terrariums we had done.
I realized that I have done a ton of terrariums, for both work and home but have not actually written up a blog post. SO... I will share them here.
  • There are so many cute glass vessels out there these days, like this light bulb
  • Cool glass vase, sand, pebbles air plants... presto.
  • Add an inspiration stone and give it as a gift
  • Ingredients layered in this order: charcoal, moss ( to stop filtering of soil into charcoal, cactus soil ( best for its sandy base ) plants, more moss
  • Wall scones with moss and air plants, soil-less terrariums
  • Mounted air plant wall sconce
  • I love to glue fairies to rocks and put them in my terrariums, like this little one who's resting in this bowl
  • This half bowl has an Asian theme, I used rocks to mimic a river
  • How cool is this little fisher dude!
  • Find cool glass bowls or jars, add sand and shells and you can place these anywhere for an immediate 'green' decor accent
  • This is an 'aqua-terrarium' It's soil-less with just water and stones http://www.sowanddipity.com/green-gift-idea/
  • I LOVE this little avocado bowl with adorable handle... this tilladesia looks perfectly happy in this bowl
  • This fairy came with her own snail ;)
  • The flatness of this glass vessel allows for a cool little scene
Have fun by placing a little critter in your terrarium or adding colored moss.

    Love this! I remember my mom having a huge one in the 70's. I was fascinated that it didn't need watered as often like the other plants. I have a question. Can this be done with herbs like Rosemary, sage and Thyme? I'm also going to make a small one for

      Theresa Thornsberry You might be able to grow thyme in an open terrarium that was kept on the dry side, but I think rosemary and sage would quickly outgrow one, and rosemary is notoriously finicky to grow indoors anyway.
