A good book on terrariums?

ladybug_guam(z11 Guam)October 16, 2004

I buy all my books at Barnes and Noble, on line, however I couldn't find any thing on terrariums, they are all referring to animals, but not just plants.

Does any one know a good one?

I would really appreciated!

Thank you!

Ana :)

I don't know if you'll find many sources like this.

I, too have searched for books on terrariums and found nothing! Someday it may motivate me to write one myself, but not while I have small children to keep me busy! =) I did see one book mentioned in a Gardening magazine called 'Tabletop Gardens' or something like that, but it isn't just about terrariums. It also deals with dish gardens and plant groupings, and I don't know if it's any good because I haven't been able to find it or read it. Don't remember who the author is, either. Perhaps a book on botany and Wardian Cases would be of more use?

I totally agree with catalina though, this forum is excellent! =)

Tabletop gardens is a semi-good coffee table book, at most. (My personal opinion, obviously.) You know more than what's in there, substance-wise.

Thank you, all! At least I'm not the only one having trouble finding one!
Catalina: I'll go there and see what's available, thanks!

The library book that got me going with terrariums and indoor light gardens is: Newts and salamanders : everything about selection, care, nutrition, diseases, breeding, and behavior / Frank Indiviglio. It includes some good information on plants and terrariums.
