Oooh, I need to make one. I have a "moss garden" (soooo cute!) in my office, away from sunlight and spritzed with water daily but it's still slowly dieing! I think a terrarium may be my answer!

I haven't made one in years, but a primitive one is quite easy using a large pickle jar (gallon size) or you could probably use a large soda bottle, too...

you'll need some potting soil, and a few plants (don't overplant or they will crowd each other out). Once you water them the first time, you shouldn't need to water much after that (it's pretty much a closed system)

I Googled "how to make a terrarium" and got many MANY hits...
These look good:

Has anyone made a terrarium? I always think they look super and am considering making one.

Got any tips to share?

Thanks, Cheryl

�I feel the greatest destroyer of peace today is 'Abortion', because it is a war against the child... A direct killing of the innocent child, 'Murder' by the mother herself... And if we can accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love... And we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts...�
