I get so confused as to what forum to post things in - I'm going to go with this one as it is a garden, just a tiny tiny one!!  Smiley

I've been feeling fairly productive today, lots of bits and bobs including some gardening and potting up some baby spider plants. I also made a jam jar garden:





So its a clean jam jar, with some perlite in the bottom to keep it form getting too damp in there, some soil from the garden - with lots of lovely bacteria and other lovelies hopefully! then some moss, and little unknown weeds that I picked from my plant pots. I've also put some 'cat grass' seed in there in the hope they grow.

I'm not really sure what I expect from it, but it's sweet all the same. I'm hoping the little plants will take root and grow out a bit! I have some little miniature plastic animals coming my way soon, so I might add one to the garden!

I first saw one of these somewhere on craftster and cant remember where! I loved the idea though and have been thinking about it lots so pleased to have finally made one!

Cute!
I plan to make a moss terrarium in a jar as soon as I can SEE moss again (blankets of the cold white stuff outside!).
I figure MAYBE moss is something I can't kill (black BLACK thumb!)

Totally cute!  Very inspiring ~ I've been looking for ideas for when I redo my bedroom, and I might just make something like this!  Cheesy

felt like I should come back and own up to over watering this little guy, and having done some more reading there were a few things I should have done differently...it got all manky and had to be cleaned out. Still got the terrarium style bug, just made some big vase open type ones! :-)

Terrariums are cool.  With a good lid, you shouldn't really HAVE to water...moisture will condense and "rain" in the jar.  Good luck with your next one, can't wait to see it!
