We’ve got a new obsession: terrariums.
We were recently fortunate enough to nab the mod-tastic Terradome
during a Design Within Reach sale (still available direct from Modern past
), and now we’ve ordered an additional trio of globe terrariums from Sprout Home
in hopes of creating our own hanging gardens.
Terrariums are an ideal solution for bringing in the “outdoors” inside:
• They’re extremely low maintenance, with certain enclosed styles requiring only monthly maintenance. Green thumbs not required! In fact, a common piece of advice given to first time terrarium owners is “neglect it!”
• The abundance of Southern California sunlight makes for ideal growing of many of the sunlight-hungry, terrarium compatible plants.
• Terrariums are available in an assortment of sizes and styles that can be set ontop of tables, hung from ceilings, wall mounted, or even built into lighting bases.
