need ideas for what to put in terrarium
Hi everyone. I have some glass wall terrariums that are somewhat similar to what is shown in the link below. Essentially they are glass globes with a flat back that allows it to be hung on a wall, and there is a hole in the top that's just large enough to stuff a small plant in there.
I had assumed (I guess wrongly) that these would be good for airplants, but alas the air plants didn't do very well, and I was told that in fact they need more....er...air (duh on me I guess!)...and that that's why they didn't flourish in the terrariums.
So...what would you all suggest for these wall globes? I obviously can't have anything too heavy....would ferns or mosses be better in these....maybe I just put a bit of rocks in the bottom, then a layer of potting soil, then a small fern plant? Or is there a simply plant that could survive with just an occasional soaking/spritz of water, but that wouldn't need soil and/or rocks? I was hoping to keep this pretty simple.... ;-)
