The Terrarium Trend Isn't Going Anywhere — These Are Our 15 Favorites
These terrariums will help your plants thrive, no matter what shade your thumb happens to be.
I don’t need to convince you of just how delightful terrariums are; their charms are obvious. Each one is a rainforest in miniature, lush with all kinds of gorgeous plants and blooms. Add a few crystals, maybe a couple seashells, or a battery-operated strand of lights, and even the dullest room in your space instantly comes alive.
But here’s the real bonus to terrariums: They’re just so easy. Consider the Victorian glass conservatory below you there. Fill it with orchids, ferns, mosses, all the fussy flora that typically withers into extinction within weeks of taking up residence in your living room. But shutter them up together within this perfectly humid little case, and suddenly they thrive — and with no more effort on your part than giving them a gentle mist once a month.
Right now there are so many options, and they go way beyond the expected shapes. Sure, there are still plenty of romantic bell-jar styles on offer, but scattered among these classics you’ll also find surprises like the shadow-box end table ahead that’s been designed to stock with greenery, or the glass-paned lamp below that’s ready-made for your collection of no-fuss air plants. Whatever your aesthetic, the 15 terrariums ahead will let you fill your home with greenery — no matter what shade your thumb happens to be.
