Who doesn't love a terrarium? They're cute, compact and practically self sustaining. Well, folks, I have failed at them in the past. Hi, I'm Jessica and I'm a Chronic Overwaterer. ('hi, Jessica!')
No more! I'm turning over a new leaf (groan). I have a small collection of tillandsia (air plants) that survived the move from the apartment and just ordered a new supply. I get all of my tillandsia from this seller on ebay, they have excellent directions, an amazing selection and my orders always arrive in great condition. (no, they have no idea I'm posting this)
These terrariums are very simple to create and maintain. I bought a couple of glass jars from a craft store, added rocks (after cleaning both jars and rocks) and the plants. It helped to have chopsticks around to arrange the plants and adjust the rocks.
These little terrariums were actually an after thought. The main project was the dining table centerpiece terrarium!
Found this cute little number at the Goodwill a while ago and have had this project in mind since then! It works perfectly! Everyone at the table can still see and converse with each other, it's enclosed so my cats can't eat the plants and it's interesting to view from every angle.
