The Making Of A Woodland Terrarium

mini woodland biosphere

When Cocoon Home was recently commissioned to create a terrarium, I thought that a woodland scene would be perfect given that trees and shrubs will soon to be bare.  Using ferns, begonias and mosses the terrarium takes on a lush green micro-climate that can be be enjoyed all year round. Take a look at how it came together:

Begonias, mosses and ferns need to stay moist, not wet and definitely not dry, so I created mini oasis pots to plant them in.  The oasis will hold the moisture while the charcoal placed on the bottom of the vase will purify the excess water.  The plants will just need to be sprayed lightly once a week.
