Terrarium Tuesday

This is the first of a new weekly feature here at Geek Gardens.  We will be showcasing succulent terrarium creations. For our first installment of Terrarium Tuesday, we are featuring a collection of terrariums that are now available at the Smiling Turtle Art Spot.  Together, these pieces make an incredibly interesting and stunning centerpiece.

Terrarium SetThis group really highlights what we love to do here at Geek Gardens.  The terrarium glass is a collection of pieces from all different sources.  The small tube glass came from a thrift shop, the largest glass was a random clearance purchase, and the middle terrarium glass was so awesome we just couldn’t wait to plant it!

Terrarium2Succulents are so amazing because of all the different textures and varieties of the plants.  This terrarium features crassula perforata, sempervivum, and graptosedum.  With plenty of sunlight, all three plants “blush” with the same deep redish purple color.

Terrarium3The larger terrarium contains sempervivum, golden sedum, crassula gollum, and crassula capitella.  A few considerations were made with this terrarium.  The sedum and crassula capitella are young plants and will grow considerably and we wanted to make sure that they had room to flourish in the terrarium.  Additionally, in the summer all but the sempervivum will blush in a bright red color and return to deep greens in the fall and winter.  The changes in colors increases their interest year round!

Join us next Tuesday for another installment of Terrarium Tuesday!
