I like pretty things but I don't like to spend money that's why I learned to make things. I have been interested in the terrarium for a while and even tried my hand at a couple but haven't been happy with the results I've achieved. This month I am going to be looking into a couple of different types of indoor gardens including a small water garden.
This week I am trying to decide which types I want to try and what I need to make them.
I am certain I want to try for a small water garden and succulent garden but there are many other types as well.
Terrariums come in all shapes and sizes but as it happens I already have the beginnings of one of those it just needs the plants. I used a small fish tank as the base so that is something you can keep an eye out for if you want to follow along.
There is this fairy garden made from multiple clay pots that I am interested in as well
A window herb garden is an option but considering how black my thumb is I am better off sticking with hardier plants like succulents and cacti.
So which ones do I want to do?
1) Small water garden
2) Small succulent garden (the wall one is interesting but the instructions are no longer available and I don't want to have to reverse engineer it
3) Small Zen garden (I think I already have the basics of one but I'll need to check
4) Finish fairy garden terrarium
and if I have the time and energy I will tackle the clay pot one as well.
Mainly what I need is to visit a gardening centre to get the plants I need. I will be going out to the building garden and see how my hens & chicks are doing. I will probably bring a couple back in with me to use in the fairy garden & maybe the succulent garden to begin with then move onto the more difficult things like the water garden.
