Terrarium Plants

What makes a great terrarium?

A classy enclosure (see our other story for ideas).

The right soil, stones and internal decor.

But most of all of course, the plants!

 

You might be surprised to know that younger versions of plants that are typically quite large, can thrive in terrariums. The enclosed environment limits their growth and you'll get cute mini versions of the plants. 

If you're looking for a splash of colour, try African violets, or the pin cushion plant (Nertera granadensis)

Want a dense forest? Try Maidenhair fern (Adiantum raddianum)

Maidenhair fern terrarium

 

Or have bold colours and stripes without any flowers, with Watermelon peperomia (Peperomia argyreia) or the Zebra plant (Aphelandra squarrosa)

Want to have that lush wild overflowing abundant sprawling look? Try the Spider plant (Chlorophytum comosum)

For a more delicate look, try Asparagus or emerald fern (Protasparagus setaceus)

How about a glow-in-the-dark look? Try Moon valley friendship plant (Pilea involucrata)

And that's just the tip of the iceberg! There are so many other plants to try, and so many ways to stretch your creativity.
