Last week I alluded to how excited I was for Terrarium Tuesday. I mentioned that this was something unlike I had ever done. So this weeks installment of Terrarium Tuesday is what I would describe as an Old English Greenhouse style terrarium. Hopefully this description is fitting (my UK readers will have to let me know!).
I found the terrarium a while ago and I have been waiting for inspiration on what to put inside. Well, I obviously was going to put succulents, but what succulents and in what containers? So last week I was reorganizing the greenhouse and I was moving around some hyptertufa concrete planters that I had prepared for a show this spring. It hit me that they would look perfect holding succulents in the greenhouse style terrarium.
I really like the concrete and the metal together. Lots of different combinations of plants and colors can be used. This is the first greenhouse terrarium that I have put together and I am really liking it. Definitely the easiest to maintain. Also, if you are a succulent over-waterer, I cannot recommend a better container than our concrete hypertufa pots. They pull excess water out of the soil very quickly which means you can water them just about every day.
And it wouldn’t be a complete post without combining it with some other succulent creation. This pretty lady succulent bust added the same feel to this grouping and I thought it looked great together.
Thanks for stopping by, have a great week!
