Contemporary Tabletop Terrariums

A glass plant terrarium provides an enclosure for a living landscape in a very small space. A tabletop terrarium is a contemporary way to incorporate living plants into home design, whether placing glass terrarium containers atop outdoor patio furniture or as a centerpiece at your dining room table. Doing it yourself is simple, just choose a tabletop terrarium in the desired size and style and then fill with soil, pebbles, rocks, twigs and moss or combinations thereof.

Glass terrarium containers are generally suited to accommodate plants with shallow roots. Depending on the type of planting materials utilized, a glass plant terrarium can easily be turned into a miniature ecosystem that imitates a desert or swamp type terrain. Succulents are a natural for terrarium life and prove a favorite because of their low maintenance nature and vibrant colors. If planting a tabletop terrarium for the first time a variety of kits are available that contain materials to get started. As a general rule, rocks should be placed at the bottom for drainage.
