Casa Green – Terrariums

I received a couple of questions regarding this image of designer Thom Filicia. Are you familiar with terrariums?
Terrariums come in different shapes, sizes, and styles. They are so elegant and own a timeless beauty.
I love organic shaped containers for terrariums.
And I love easy-to-do,  Martha Stewart terrariums.
Especially when they are such a fun project to do with kids.
Light bulbs are also another great alternative.
Closed terrariums are a great choice for tropical plants.
If  you choose a desert theme for your terrarium, you need your container to be open.
Posibilities are endless.
I’m especially intrigued by air plants.
A few important notes if you’re considering growing a terrarium:
You’ll need:
A layer of gravel.
A layer of charcoal.
Potting mix.
Mist the soil before covering.
Terrariums need light, so a place close to a window is an excellent place for it. Don’t put it under direct light.
If you’d like to do a single plant terrarium, do it easy with a container. Be sure to arrange 1 inch of pebbles in the base. Use a ceramic pot for your plant (not a plastic one). Mist the soil with water before you cover it. Piece of cake!
Are you tempted by terrariums? I am!
