Recently described as the more stylish cousin of the indoor houseplant, plant terrariums have seen a huge revival in recent years with many being featured on Home and Garden Shows as well as in design magazines. While they are rather easy to assemble there are definitely a few things you need to know before you start building your own.
This book will explain what plants work and what plants don�t as well as how to create your own terrarium in a simple but very creative step-by-step process. It even includes a shopping list to get you started, plenty of sample terrariums with air plants and succulents and, not to forget, helpful tips on how to take care of your terrarium plants, including a list of the most common mistakes and how to prevent them.
*** This is the 2nd edition of an earlier book with the same title. It has been completely revised and now includes an in-depth sample terrarium and resource section ***

Loved it! I bought this book in the morning, went to the store and immediately created my first terrarium. And I’m not a gardener; I do office work for a living. But the instructions are simple, straight to the point and super easy to follow. I love this book. There are no page long explanations about biological facts hobby gardeners like me don’t need to know. It’s a how to book. And that was exactly what I was looking for. I wanted to learn how to create my first plant terrarium. The maintenance tips are great too. I had no idea how to take care of air plants and I would have never known how to water them. Awesome idea to include it.
Ok, this isn't the longest book I have ever read. That's why it only gets 4 stars not 5. But it explains step by step how to create an awesome plant terrarium and that was exactly what I was looking for. It even explains how to take care of the plants after you have created your terrarium, and that’s something I couldn’t find in any other book. They usually just explain how to create them but not how to maintain them. Great idea to include this. Thumbs up!
This was seven pages long on my nook and had only one photo ( The one you see on the cover). The information found in those seven pages can be easily found for free anywhere on the internet or learned while speaking to the workers at your local flower shop. If I could have given it a rating of zero, it would never have received one star.
My kids loved this book. No page long explanations, just super easy to follow instructions on how to set up your first terrarium.
Need I say more ? This much information can be gotten by contacting the vedors of the supplies needed for a terrarium, free of charge. It is,however, a concise description of what you need to get to a terrarium started.
