Winter Gardening: bring on the terrariums

We have to admit: last year we joined in with the terrarium craze. (Well, technically it started long before that, but our fire was certainly re-kindled.) With somewhat of a green thumb, and a burning need to create, we set out on our terrarium obsession -ahem- we mean adventure. The above containers were received as gifts intended for quite different purposes from Pottery Barn.

Quite soon after discovering the ease of creating terrariums, we attempted our hand at "aquatic gardens." This shockingly was easy as well. With just a few amano shrimp, some penny wort, and java moss, this little hanging aquarium thrived. The container is unfortunately discontinued, but some similar ones can be found at CB2.

A great instructional site for novice terrarium builders is here. We have many more new terrariums in the works here at Design Spunk...stay posted.
