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 know an online source...

Gardenweb :o)
I don't know if you'll find many sources like this.

RE: A good book on terrariums?

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.

RE: A good book on terrariums?

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!

RE: A good book on terrariums?

I found some sites online. Google: plant terariums.

RE: A good book on terrariums?

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.
