Terrariums or call them mini gardens, they are just the new way to create miniature greenhouse in a very small space. Terrariums are a wonderful way to bring the outdoors right inside the house. They are the new definition of bringing artwork and living things all at once. They are nothing more than an independent ecosystem under glass or put in better words as a garden in a bottle that are easy to maintain. The delicacy and charisma of the miniature gardens not only gets us close to nature, but also creates a restful mood.
Terrariums are slowly making their comeback, either as an art or as a new way to stay close to nature. Terrariums are a great way to bring some life and greenery indoors with all the benefits of a houseplant with the appealing appearance. They are making their place in houses because of lack of sufficient place in the modern living environment to enjoy greenery. They fit easily in any part of your home and let you take the feel of nature all the year around, and so they are well known as Mini Greenhouse. Since the plants are contained in their own humidity-controlled environment, they require very little care and also requires only occasional watering and a bright area.
