Plants around the house add life and interest to a small space. As we've made clear we're totally in love with terrarium's but can find them to be a little daunting to put together and maintain. So when we saw these simple open fishbowl's as faux terrarium's we were smitten:
The key is to not overwater these suckers since there isn't any drainage. We've done some similar plantings in vintage bowls covering the surface of the dirt with aquarium rocks to add color behind the succulents.
Thanks to reader Palmetto for pointing out GardenWeb and their forum on terrarium's in yesterday's Guide to Houseplants.
