Overview

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

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. Youre 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. (Oct.)
