Ok I have found the perfect terrarium-a glass cake stand with a dome that was gathering dust in my home (seeing as how my baked goods are eaten before they can sit and look pretty Tongue).The only problem is the stand isnt very shallow and Im not sure if it would be suitable.Any suggestions?

Maybe you could find like a pie pan shaped thing that would fit just inside the dome?

  Interesting idea, I would love to have bottles of green in the winter time but I have one point to make...moss like all living things requires oxygen and I see that the jars are sealed, is the moss doing okay without air?  or do you open them frequently enough that it is not an issue?
    ps I like the caterpillar!

Good point. I'm definitely no expert on moss and just made these terrariums based on instructions I found online. I read somewhere that oxygen for some plants can come in the form of dissolved oxygen in water. I don't know how creditable that fact is or if that applies to moss too.  I guess I'll just wait and see if my moss dies. Trial and error! heh

Will a terrarium work if its  "topless" ? Like if I put the moss in a jar without a lid?

Yep I've seen lidless terrariums. I think you just need to water them more often.  Moss doesn't need much watering to begin with though. Be careful not to overwater it.  This link has a little info on moss terrariums. Scroll down the page. http://bizarrelabs.com/plant1.htm

OOOhhhh I love this! I wonder though is there any way to do this without the plant needing sun? Huh-not "sunless" just not needing a ton.

Yep. The moss actually shouldn't be in direct sunlight anyway because they'll dry up.

Thanks everyone for the comments!!  I think I'll keep the caterpiller and apples in the 2 jars for now and I'll definitely have to make more so the other guys have homes too.  If any of you end up making a terrarium, you should post the pics up here. I'd love to see them! Smiley

that is totally cute and i absolutley love the caterpillar.
where did you get those figures, if you don't mind me asking?

I found the apples in the miniature dollhouse furnishing section of a craft store.  The monkey guy was part of a toy set from Tokidoki. The sets are called Cactus pups.  I think they have them at Urban Outfitters? Anyway you can see the monkey on this link next to the pink cactus pup: http://www.vinylpulse.com/2007/10/tokidoki-cactus.html    The rest of the minatures are glass figurines that I got from a store in Japan town in San Francisco and from a jewelry and bead Expo in Columbus, OH.  I feel like I've definitely seen these figurines around at other places, but I can't recall where exactly.  Anyone know what I mean?

I ship carnivorous plants and moss all over the US and I have shipped them all over the world.. I haven't had any perish yet Smiley



Wildfyre, do you sell your carnivorous plants online? You've inspired me to try keeping them again.

I vote for the owls! They are so cute!
I think I might have to steal this idea of an xmas gift. My mother is obsessed with her lawn and lawn gnomes but she lives in Wisconsin so she is deprived of green for nearly 6 months in a bad year and her poor little gnomes have to stay locked in the garage! These would be awesome to give to her with little mini polymer clay gnomes Smiley So here's the question: will moss survive being shipped cross country?


Ooo yes a terrarium with a gnome in it would be perfect for her!  And it appears that these can be shipped cross country as I've seen people on Etsy selling them. http://www.etsy.com/search_results.php?search_type=tag_title&search_query=moss+terrariums

These are amazing! I bookmarked them  Smiley

I think you should make a whole set! Micheals has the little jars for only a jar each, so that way you could give all your tinies a home.

I think I might borrow this idea for my dorm room, would that be alright?

Of course you can make some! They really weren't my idea or anything. I got inspired from some of the moss terraiums I saw on Flickr.  Some of them had tiny mushroom and gnome figurines. So cute!  And the different sized jars is a great idea. I will have to make a home for them all!
