when it comes to gardening, i’ve got a pretty black thumb. so i’ve always been intrigued by the idea of terrariums- those little glassed in worlds where plants seem to thrive within their own self-contained environment. but after a few unsuccessful tries, i gave up on being able to create and sustain my own indoor terrarium. that changed a few weeks ago when i received a beautiful terrarium as a birthday present. i was hell-bent on getting this one to work so i headed straight for the experts- sprout home. i’ve been a fan of sprout for years and was thrilled when tassy from the brooklyn shop (click here to see her lovely bklyn home) offered to share her easy how-to tips for creating and managing your own terrarium.
not only was the process easy, but once i saw someone break everything down, i realized that this was THE perfect project for anyone who wants a little green space in the city. terrariums are inexpensive, easy to manage and, if you know the right steps to making one, perfect for anyone with small spaces- or a black thumb like me.
thankfully tassy invited me back to film the making of a terrarium from the ground up, and shared her expert tips for terrarium creation and care. i hope you’ll enjoy her how-to video as much as i did, and that you’ll be inspired to pick up your own terrarium and try one at home. if you like the vessels you see in the video you can buy them right here (scroll down for all the options shown in the video), or try creating your own using a found vessel or something you have laying around the house.
*if you have any questions for tassy, please leave them in the comment section below. she’ll answer them as a group later today!
