The Paris apartment Terrarium DIY


When you live in Paris, you are most likely living in an apartment where the light and room is not there. This is why we love terrariums so much.
I bought plants from the garden store. You will need plants and flowers for inside the house. If you are not sure ask someone. All plants need to be low light.
A big tip to make this garden successful is to vary the textures and leaf shapes. They  are between $2 and $3.
I started with a pink African violet, then with Shefflera 'luseane' and Fittonia 'Josan'.


You will need a wide glass bowl. They are between $3 and $5.



Miracle grow is very good to use.


 Window sill arrangement and deco.


For a total of $11 it is an amazing terrarium.

Beautiful! I wish it was possible to make one like that. Any live plants in our house have to be in a terrarium with a cover or else get eaten by cats.

I love the terrarium! I have a glass bowl that will work perfect and I can't wait to head to the nursery this weekend and buy some plants. You are right - a variety of textures and shapes in the plants make it so much more interesting, and yours is lovely! Happy Pink Saturday. ~Marti

Hi,
I never would have thought to put an African Violet in a terrarium. Looks beautiful.
Visit me too if you can.
