Who Doesn’t Love a Good Terrarium?

Someone who doesn’t appreciate the awesomeness that embodies the terrarium world, that’s who.

Although I have yet to try making one, these little pieces are some of the coolest works of sustained, living work I’ve seen to date.

Light bulb terrariums are just so cool.This one reminds me a bit of the whole steam punk aesthetic.

This one is so pretty. The play of texture and color is quite lovely.

Now, this is a great idea. The terrarium itself is very neat, but placing a container full of live cacti in a barrel of water and lily pads adds a fun note to an outdoor environment.

If you’re wondering how to make your own, check out the video above. I rather enjoy the idea of including a Venus Fly Trap. Carnivorous plants are always fun.
