Dive into the ultimate handcrafted, fun way to bring the natural world indoors!

Terrariums are back and better than ever! If you haven't seen this virtually foolproof and no-fuss way to bring nature indoors in the last forty years, you are in for a treat. Whether you live in an apartment, are chained to an office desk, or just want to be surrounded by green, living things, creating terrariums is a delightful way to combine the worlds of home decor and gardening. Terrarium expert and teacher Maria Colletti makes designing your very own interior gardens easy with step-by-step photos of over twenty of her own designs. Get all of the information you need on the "it" plants of today--tillandsias (air plants), orchids, mosses, cacti, and succulents, along with "traditional" terrarium ferns.

Learn how to transform basic designs using moss, air plants, succulents, vertical planters, hanging glass globes, and more into an unlimited creative palette. 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!
