Currently Obsessed with: Terrariums

If you haven't noticed, terrariums are back in style. Of course, they were big in the '70's and now all the hipsters are into them. Check out here and here if you don't believe me.

Anyway, wanting to do something a little different with my plants, I gave it a go, with excellent results.

I found the glass dish at the Salvation Army for a couple bucks. This one is my favorite.

I had this one under the skylight in the bathroom, but the cats were too interested in it so I had to move it somewhere less prominent. Luckily, the fern will tolerate low light.

I call this "desert bubble." I love how this one looks with the different textures and colors. I tried using lava rock for the first time and I love it. It looks so perfect with the succulents.

This terrarium is keeping it simple with a piece of driftwood and soft green Kalanchoe.


  1. Hey welcome back you two! I love your terrariums. Of course I like the succulent one the best. Red lava rock looks so awesome. I would like to get some really large ones to put in my cactus garden. I know where I can buy them I just need to save up. Crazy for rocks huh?! Hey I got the coolest book on making terrariums you would like. It is called: Terrarium Craft by Amy Bryant Aiello and Kate Bryant. I think you will love it!

  2. Great find on the terrariums. I love them too. Nice move going to Salvation Army for some container coolness...and on the cheap. Matti
