Wonderful terrariums.  I love the bell jars. 

The plant with the rounded leaves looks like a jade plant.  I think I would add some trinkets as well.

They're awesome.  Great job.

I love these!  I don't know what it is about terrariums - somehow plants are better inside glass.  Grin  I've made a few over the years. My favourite place to find cheap glassware is divey little flea markets.  Sometimes you can get really old jars that have lots of personality.

These would make great gifts!

P.S. I rocked this!

i wonder if the last picture, the ones that look like little rosettes, could be Echeveria?
i have a few echeveria variations and love  them. they are awesome and super easy to propagate. just take one leaf off from the outer edge and put it in a new pot, usually grows a whole new mini rosette. have fun!

hi hi! those are definetely cute!
i love the vintage jars. my mother and grandmother both have some of those around their houses since forever lol. or maybe it's tempered glass.. hmm..

Anyway.. I have maybe one suggestion.. should the pots perhaps be larger.. in case your plants grow?

 You should use moss in your terraniums, it would add a carpet and it never grows tall..It looks pretty also...Be careful, some of the plants you are using are succulents so they wont do well with alot of humidity.

Those are cool! I wish I had a place to display something like that. As it is, my toddlers would go, "Ooh, jars of dirt! They must be for us!" haha
