Terrarium Craft features fifty original designs that you can re-create or use as inspiration for your own design. Each entry comes with clear step-by-step directions on how to assemble and care for your terrarium. You’ll also find helpful information about selecting a container, using appropriate materials, choosing the right plants, and maintaining your terrarium. (Hint: It’s easy! In fact, many terrariums are self-sustaining, requiring no maintenance whatsoever!)
For those who enjoy creating small landscapes, this book offers interesting ideas, some traditional and some unusual, with how-to basics. By presenting a variety of terrariums, it is meant, I think, to not suggest the copying of its ideas so much as to act as inspiration for developing one's own ideas, which any good "how-to" book should do. The amount of enjoyment and information one derives from the book will probably depend on how skilled one already is in developing terrariums. Those well-versed in terrarium craft may not find it as helpful and inspiring as those who are beginning to work with terrariums, who will likely find encouragement in it as well as the fun of creating small landscapes.
