Gnome terrarium paradise
I remember being fascinated with terrariums as a kid. Mini worlds encased in glass. That was probably somewhere in the 70s but it wasn’t til I saw one filled with succulents on some florists website that I finally went for it. I don’t consider myself to have a green thumb, I only go for plants that are easy and super forgiving! This one’s been going for over a couple months now and I just noticed some baby plants popping up. There’s also a tiny little spider living in there. Everybody must be pretty happy! It’s the perfect pet!!! No spit, poop and best of all it requires NO exercise. Heaven in a fishbowl! My contented gaze is proof!
There are tons of tutorials, how to’s and lists online for making terrariums. I got a big fishbowl, cut some plants from the yard and did it. I used pea gravel from the backyard, too. Only thing I had to buy was cactus mix, a bag of moss and charcoal. Don’t know if I even really needed the charcoal but I liked the idea. Took about 10 min. to assemble. I keep this one in an east facing corner window and spray the heck out of it with water once a month. It seems to love me. Try it!
