After making a number of closed terrariums, I wanted to try an open terrarium with no (intentional) inhabitants.
HomeGoods continues to have great deals on glass containers, and I found this one for $11! It appeared to be a factory second, with a very minor flaw in the glass, but no cracks.
I’ve seen containers smaller than this go for $40 at Target and other places.
The white rocks are from Dollar General, and I’m still not sure what I think of them. They seemed like a good idea at the time, and they have grown on me. But they are just SO WHITE.
The other rocks are from a local stream, and the plants are all store-bought, still left over from my other plant buying trips.
This sits in our NW facing bay window that gets hammered with light during the second half of the day. I’m still monitoring how it is doing. There’s a bit of shade provided by some other plant holders and pots, but I am concerned that by midsummer, it will be too hot.
