Moss Terrarium

The thought of creating a little world in a form of a terrarium has always intrigued me. I have attempted my hands at plant terrariums with some of them not so successful. I however have come back to the idea of trying my hands at terrariums again but this time with moss. The plush velvety […]

Marimo and Moss Terrarium

I have been a long lover of moss terrariums and Marimo. After seeing pictures of a tiered glass jar and a Marimo in a glass container with moss on top,  a few weeks ago, I was inspired to bring my love of terrariums and water gardens together in a tiered glass container.  I really like the outcome.
