Welcome! Let's talk about all things relating to the growing, showing, hybridizing and appreciation of African violets and gesneriads. And while we're at it, anything else that's interesting about plants too!
I found the big bubble-bowl terrarium up on the shelf and thought that it was a great day to think about making a terrarium.
It's cold outside, gray and cloudy... what better activity than putting together a little something for the show.
It turns out that finding just the right materials that fit into the bowl purr-fectly, getting something that doesn't mind the humidity is all part of the art of design.
This display won a best container garden ribbon!!!!
The trouble with this terrarium though is it seems cranky. When I tried to move it to the shelf, it protests. I tied to slide it to the end of the work table so I could continue to work on other projects and it makes funny noises. Apparently, it demands to take up the exact center of the work space so that it's visible from all angles. *Sigh.
