Rock Garden . . . in a Container

When you just have to plant something and it’s still winter, there are many indoor plants to choose from.  Here are some cute houseplants in dish gardens accented with stones, a frog and a decorated stone I found at an art fair. (Unfortunately, I don’t have the artist’s name).

Easy Terrarium

In January, the desire to work with green plants increases, especially for those of us who live in parts of the country with cold winters.  Making a comeback are terrariums . . . plants growing in a  semi-enclosed environment that retains moisture and higher levels of humidity. Glass containers are most often used.  Adding animals or stones add to the whimsy of the presentation.  Water is added sparingly.
