Tiny gardens in terrariums

(Taylor) Plano, TX(Zone 8a)

this is an old thread I really like and wanted to share with you miniature lovers.
She did some really neat ones in terrariums. This is what I want to try next!

They have some really inexpensive large apothecary jars at Big Lots, Tuesday morning, and Hobby lobby, that would be great for this

I do that also, terrariums in glass.

I won a prize for it at my clubs' Violet show. At that time, there was a mini violet inside.

Aaaah, so very cute! Very inspirational! Yet another thing I'd like to make one day!

Oh, goodie, Sally-
You can be our resident terrarium specialist :0)

I know I want a micro mini sinningia, but aside from that I'm clueless on the terrarium mini plants

Humm, now this tertarium gardening has my wheels turning. Has anyone turned a truffle dish or a glass dome upside down over a dish garden? Would that work even though the dish with the plants in it isn't glass?

(Taylor) Plano, TX(Zone 8a)

those both sound like great ideas.

I just bought two glass candle holder/containers. They are glass containers to put a candle in, and the top is used as a snuffer.

I think they would make great terrariums

you can see them here in this picture in the middle. This is a picture I took of my recent hobby lobby 50% off finds...

The all glass one is my favorite...can't wait to plant it.

I have two more terrariums now. I have this one and one below. The one below is a re-do of the terrarium I posted above.

I showed this in other another thread. But here is the one I re-did.

Those are beautiful with the sweet fairies inside! Oh I gotta get started. LOL

Seedpicker, you got yourself a wonderful assortment there. Love that tall glass one and the one with the ornate base and top is so elegant.

(Taylor) Plano, TX(Zone 8a)

yes, I remember seeing those on another post. They are wonderful. I especially like the fairy gazing at the planet marble thingy.

Are you familiar with helxine solerii(babies tears)? Would that be a good terrarium plant?

Cdawg-thanks! Those were from hobby lobby. They were having a 50% off sale, but many of those items were marked way below that. They want to put out Christmas stuff, so getting rid of stuff cheap.

The container I think you are referring to(natural brown/tan ceramic)?...was onlyl $14.99. I think it was supposed to be a kitchen container for spaghetti noodles or something, because was with, and matches, the serving platter in the same picture...

That little dressmakers dummy is going to be stuffed with soil and succulents. I can't wait to do that one...

Baby tears would probably be fine. I just try things, they usually work, even if you have to trim them when they get too large or spred out.
