Terrariums are the ultimate way to bring the natural world indoors!

The art of terrarium making is back in vogue and better than ever. Growing collections of adorable miniature plants in glass vessels is a great way to bring the indoors out and get back in touch with nature—no matter where you live and what time of year it is. Whether you reside in a tiny apartment, spend the bulk of your hours at an office desk, or just want to be better connected to green, living things, terrariums are the ticket. A wondrous combination of nature, gardening, and home decor, terrarium building and tending is both therapeutic and inspirational.

Terrarium expert and teacher Maria Colletti makes designing your very own interior gardens easy with step-by-step photos of over twenty of her own terrarium designs. Plus, you'll get all the information you need about popular terrarium plants, such as tillandsias (air plants), orchids, mosses, cacti, succulents, and ferns.

Transform basic glass containers, including vases, jars, vertical planters, hanging globes, tabletop greenhouses, and more, into miniature worlds of green. Once you know the basics (the plants, the vessels, and a basic understanding of soil, water, and humidity), you can mix and match for an endless exploration of your own creativity!
 

Maria Colletti, author of Terrariums: Gardens under Glass and Living Decor, is a traveling workshop instructor. She currently teaches the Living Décor terrarium series at New York Botanical Garden, where she previously spent thirteen years as the Garden Shop manager. Colletti was dubbed a "terrarium savant" in an online article for Edible Manhattan, and her terrarium tips have been featured in the Washington Post.

"Maria Colletti is no ordinary gardener. Instead, her green designs are small and portable. Hers is the domain of the terrarium--she creates miniature landscapes thriving in a world of glass, sunlight and minimal intervention. Known as the "terrarium savant" by a legion of fans, she has cultivated both expertise and a following that, like her creations, has grown organically with time." - Edible Manhattan



"Other books on this subject verge into kitsch, with authors ornamenting their terrariums with miniature people, furnishings, and animals, but Colletti happily avoids this detour and focuses purely on plants"
