Description

Bring the natural world indoors with designs for more than twenty stylish, modern mini-gardens—includes step-by-step photos.
Create your own garden under glass with expert advice, step-by-step photos, plant suggestions, and over twenty terrarium designs. Growing adorable miniature plants in glass vessels is a great way to stay in touch with nature all year round—and add compelling, modern elements to your home decor.
Whether you reside in a tiny apartment, spend hours at an office desk, or just want to be better connected to green, living things, terrariums are the ticket. Now terrarium expert and teacher Maria Colletti makes designing and caring for your very own interior gardens easy with:
·Step-by-step, photo-illustrated instructions for making over twenty of her own terrarium designs
·All the information you need about popular terrarium plants, such as tillandsias (air plants), orchids, mosses, cacti, succulents, and ferns
·Ideas and tips for choosing your glass vessels, with choices including vases, lidded jars, fish bowls, vertical planters, hanging globes, tabletop greenhouses, and more
·Maintenance, troubleshooting, and watering tips, including vessel-specific advice
A wondrous combination of nature, gardening, and interior design, terrarium building and tending is both therapeutic and inspirational—and once you know the basics (the plants, the vessels, and a basic understanding of soil, water, and humidity), you can mix and match for an endless exploration of your own creativity!

        September 21, 2015
        Self-described “garden lifestyle retailer” Colletti, who works at the Shop in the Garden store in the New York Botanical Garden, offers step-by-step guidance for designing, creating, and maintaining miniature enclosed landscapes for vibrant indoor growing. “Think of yourself as a garden designer on a minuscule scale. You’re actually designing a garden or recreating a landscape from nature,” she writes. Using her knowledge as a retailer in conjunction with her love of plant design, she walks readers through the process of creating a viable terrarium with guidance on what supplies to buy and where to get creative. Her ideas range from traditional fish bowl enclosures and hanging vessels to creative cookie jar and cake platter enclosures with sand, moss, or pebbles as the base. Colletti includes plant ideas and design schemes for ecosystems such as the tropical terrarium (lots of air plants), the woodland (ferns and mosses), or the desert (succulents, cacti), all illustrated with abundant color photos. In all cases the basic premise is the same: a thriving ecosystem that sits on the dining table, rendering the joy of watching nature in progress in a small world you created.
