There's an interesting article in the Times today about the growing (pardon the pun) popularity of terrarium gardens. They're an easy and inexpensive way for us apartment dwellers to have a tidy little garden. But see, I've been cursed with the black thumb of death (RIP herb garden....) and would like to avoid an arrest for herbicide. Could this supposedly self-sufficient set up be the answer?
Design Sponge has a video that shows the step by step process of how to correctly assemble a terrarium. My take away was that it's like a little biodome that requires a very particular soil and drainage system to keep things living. You can buy kits on Etsy that have all the necessary parts or, even easier, buy one already made at the Brooklyn Flea Market.
