This winter, bring a piece of your garden inside with a terrarium. A terrarium is a container that houses a small garden or plant. To start your terrarium you will need to pick your container and plants. Once you’ve planted your terrarium and watered it, you seal it. The moisture in the soil condenses, turns back into moisture and run down the sides of the terrarium. This moisture in turn waters the plants. If you do not want to have your terrarium sealed, it will need to be watered, because the moisture will escape through the top. Even if you do not live in an area that experiences colder climates, terrariums are a wonderful and creative way to bring a little bit of nature into your living space.
