I LOVE TERRARIUMS! 

Why do I love them so much? I think they are just magical! The idea of creating a self-sustaining garden in a container, with little or no maintenance, is what inspired me to make them.

Since I am a huge fan of these mini eco-systems, I have made this fun and easy, step by step Video tutorial on how to build and maintain these tiny gardens of green. It's a simple, rewarding activity, and once you learn the basics, there's no limit to how much you can customize it with your favourite knick knacks!
