How to create your dream terrarium
Who has not seen popular indoor glass planters? A new home to small plants and other greenery: the large glass structures, in the shape of a greenhouse or dome; the bottles with the cork/glass lids, or even goldfish bowls. Plants are thriving in them.
The story of the terrarium had an enormous impact on transporting, establishing and sharing great varieties of flora around the world. The original terrarium, Wardian Case, was named after an English doctor Nathaniel Bagshaw Ward (1791 – 1868).
In 1829, while studying a hawk moth chrysalis in a wide-mouthed glass bottle, Ward discovered that about a week before the final insect change, a seedling fern and a grass appeared on the surface of the decomposed leaves. That discovery led to the invention of the first terrarium.
Our days planting terrariums is a fun and attractive way to add plants into any home decorating. See below what you will need to create your dream terrarium.
