I Want a Terrarium More Than I Want to Breathe Air

Yeah, ok, perhaps a little hyperbole in that title. But I have been overcome by the desire to make terraria - little glass houses for succulents or ferns.

My old flatmate Ed used to grow mini succulents and I love the idea of lots of them in one big jar.

This is yet another project that I don't have room for (although the low-maintenance certainly appeals!) yet, but it'll be on my evergrowing list when I move next year.

  1. I feel exactly the same way about terrariums! Thanks for posting this gallery of inspiration. There's something about the miniaturisation aspect that is so appealing to me. They're like living dolls houses...

  2. I think you're right Emme - the miniature aspect might be what gets me, too. And that a little habitat can quietly thrive in your living room is quite special. So glad you enjoyed them!
