Miniature terrariums are taking the garden world by storm. And terrarium kits make it easier than ever to set up your own little garden under glass.
Create a one-of-a-kind terrarium, starting with a glass vessel like the ones shown here. Add your own plants and supplies for a unique display. Make it reflect your personality. Make a woodland setting with moss and ferns. Or a captivating beach with sand, shells and beach glass.
I love the look of small terrariums -- captivating tropical scenes sure to be admired by all who see them.

Make it easy on yourself with the complete Cloche Terrarium Kit shown above.
You'll get what you need -- glass cloche, stones, potting mix and moss. Just add your own tropical plants. This DIY kit comes together in minutes for a tabletop display you'll enjoy for a long time.
It's all here. Everything you need to put in your terrarium: river rocks, charcoal, sheet moss, potting mix, plus 3 tropical plants ready to live in your mini green world.
This Fern Terrarium Plant Collection (Set of 6) will thrive in your terrarium, surrounded in humidity like their native tropical forest.
Their feathery fronds are enough to fill a good sized vase or jar. Or split them up and make 2 or 3 smaller terrariums.
Your plants will thrive only if there is sufficient light. Put your little garden near a window, but away from direct sunlight. Glass will magnify the sun's rays and damage tender tropicals.
Already have your plants? Then all you need are the supplies shown here.
Ideal for beginners -- or anyone who wants to make it easier -- the kit shown at left includes potting soil, sheet moss, charcoal and river rocks for a good-sized container. Or make a few with small containers, like the decorative vessel shown at right.
The Air Plant Tillandsia Kit (shown at right) comes with everything you need for your little garden globe: tiny seashells, glass globe and air plant.
Whether growing in seashells, as the shown here, or moss or pebbles, you want to keep the roots moist at all times. To water, just spray with room-temperature water. Avoid leaving standing water at the bottom because the roots may rot if kept too wet.
It makes an easy office plant. Take it to work and get ready for the compliments.
Perhaps one of the easiest terrariums you'll ever grow, the DIY Terrarium Jar Kit "Laguna" (shown here) has all the supplies you need to put it together in minutes.
Moss, rocks, and white sand fit beautifully in a glass jar -- plus natural twine bow to add an eye-catching element to your mini green world. Add your own air plant, mini fern or other small tropical plant.
