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?

This is a great idea. I love the look of the apples and I love the caterpillar so I think those are the 2 I'd keep in the jars.

Very cool idea. I can't grow things at all so I may have to do this....
I personally love the apples and owls best. You could glue the owls to a little stick and put them in like they are in a tree. Smiley

You beat me to it!  I was thinking about how awesome these would be in a dorm room.  I have a few random plants already, but these would be extra great.  

This is a super idea though!  Terrariums are SOO cool!  Oh, and I love the owls and the apples.  The owls seriously made me almost burst out laughing for some reason.

I like the little dog/bear and the apples - separately!

They are so cute!!!

Like somebody else said - I was thinking, why not make more and use more of the little miniatures?!  Grin

Oh oh I *love* them!!!!!

I have a 3-way tie for walrus, octopus, and apples!

I wonder if this idea would work for other plants that like water like venus fly traps Huh

PS, ROCKS


Venus Fly Traps won't live long in a situation like that because they require a dormancy period every winter. Plus, carnivorous plants need full sun and distilled water (unless your tap water is naturally very very low in minerals and contains no additives).

What ever you plant in there.. be very careful that you don't leave it in the sun. The temperature's in such a small space will rise very quickly and fry your little plants!

And yes, the moss will grow :-) What a lot of people do to "seed" moss is they collect moss that has already sent up spore capsules, dry it, crumble the mixture into dust, and then spread it where you want it to grow and keep it well watered. The spores will sprout and start growing.

Sorry for all the info. I've been into carnivorous plants and moss gardening for over 15 years.. it's an addiction Wink

Thanks for the info! I really don't know too much about moss. I only read to not put them in direct sun and to not over water them since they usual take care of themselves when in closed jars. 

Good to know about the venus fly traps. I had one once, but failed to keep it alive.

i vote for the caterpillar! so cute. the walrus is pretty darn adorable as well though...

will the moss reattach itself to the soil and then grow? that's great!

I think the moss should reattach to the soil when growing. It should be pressed into the soil a bit.  When pulling the stuff up from the ground it should come up with a thin layer of dirt that will help the transplant process.

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!
