Terrarium Tuesday


Since I started Terrarium Tuesday, I have been waiting to feature these Lightbulb Terrariums!  Of all the terrariums that I have made or even seen, this is by far my favorite.

I start these with a layer of activated charcoal which is used to purify water and keeps the lightbulb environment cleaner longer.  Soil is added followed by 2 or 3 succulent cuttings.  I use sempervivum and jovibarba cultivars, picked for their small size.  There is a huge range of sizes in these two succulents, so picking varieties that remain small when mature is very important.

After a week or two, the succulent cuttings are rooted.  In the one above, I added a top dressing of sand a small sea shell and florist’s moss.  They are so unique and interesting.  Their small size makes them perfect for an office window or really anywhere!


We sell these for $12.00 and if interested, contact us or stop by The Smiling Turtle Art Spot in Omaha to see them in person.  I hope you have a wonderful week!



Great Gifts $15.00 and under

We have been incredibly busy lately getting ready for our winter craft shows (more information here) but I didn’t want to neglect our virtual fans as well!  I quickly grabbed some pictures of different pieces that we have put together for our show that are all under $15.00.  There are some more feature updates coming on some of these products but I will highlight them quickly today!

Beach Front Medium Terrarium


Seasonal Depression starting to kick in?  Take a tropical vacay with this beautiful terrarium.  Succulents chosen to capture the blue colors.  Terrariums top dressed with beautiful sand and complete with a collection of sea shells.  More to come on these terrariums which also come in a larger and smaller size!

Traditional Medium Succulent Terrarium


The same size pictured above, this terrarium is full of a diverse grouping of succulents of all different shapes.  Selected for their brilliant green colors, this traditional terrarium is one of our most popular pieces!  Look for a full feature on these terrariums coming out soon (with significantly better pictures)!



This half circle terrarium is literally overflowing with succulents!  The beautiful burrotail succulent cannot be contained in this piece! Coupled with sempervivum succulents and moss then finished with white rock top dressing this unique terrarium is a beautiful way to add some green to your decor!  Set this in a windowsill and watch the burrotail cascade as it grows!

Bright Idea!


These mini terrariums are an awesome new product that has been overwhelmingly popular.  These glass light bulb terrariums hold fully rooted (a.k.a. small but established) succulents and are complete with polished stones and moss.  The perfect inspiration for creativity!
