i made one with cacti so didn't cover it since don't want extra moisture
made one with a little cottage scene and woodland plants (i also posted about it in the tiny garden section )
and one in a tall vase with a taller plant -a young elephant ear type (arrow plant?)
i was looking thru old magazines and found another idea --a beach scene-- a crockery type bowl-it was blue and the top layer was sand--they had a peice of drift wood and sea shell and a little patch of grass -the tall wispy yellow beach type grass--very pretty
and i maybe will think on a zen garden scene some time too-anyone try that yet?
wellllllllllll--i am having a little problem with my terrariums--the dessert one is doing fine but the woodlands and tall one are looking a little sad--i did everything right i believe and am keeping them in the right place --but i just took little plants from my yard and maybe that is the problem or that i need to give it more time--they are just kind of not doing great--in fact a few have bit the dust
i just know you all have the answers! thanks for any help!
and thanks for asking about the terrariums!
