I planted these few terrariums recently and two were given to my friends. Both types of glass containers were from IKEA and I don't know about others, but I definitely prefer containers that are just plain simple so that the plants can stand out and look their best.

I don't like to use frosted or coloured containers because they let in less light for the plants and steal the limelight away from the plants. I certainly also don't like to use those containers with surfaces that are folded because it will mask the view of the plants and distort their appearance. The only reason why I chose the second container type is because I wanted to use a variety of containers to create diversity.

Anyway, I will comment about other related issues in subsequent posts.


I made this for a friend's birthday recently and I added a butterfly sticker. Maybe I should use this as my trademark from now on?

Ok, I give up. I don't want to name my terrariums anymore since I always use the Snakeskin Plants all the time for such small containers and I don't want everything to be named after snakes. But maybe "A Tail of Two Snakes"? Get it? Aright, it is sounding very corny.
