Let’s have a look at my smallest plant terrarium!
The glass jar is an old yankee candle container. These kinds of scented candles have the perfect lids for terrariums, also I like the shape of the container so it’s a perfect upcycling project. Imagine giving one of these as a gift to someone??
The plants I used for this one are: a pink polka dot plant (Hypoestes phyllostachya), dark green silver striped tradescantia (Tradescantia zebrina), and some cute string of turtles (Peperomia prostrata).

One more from the garden for now. Was hoping to get out to the country tomorrow but the weather isn’t looking good. Maybe I’ll post a few from other years around this time later today or tomorrow.

This polka dot plant
Rating: Cute
This plant is roommates with a tarantula and doesn’t complain. Yeah there’s a few places on it that need pruning, but he without a dead leaf here or there clip the first shears.

Welcome to my garden (part ii)
...or rather, welcome to the jungle, as most of the house plants are from tropical regions, with a few succulents dotted about.
 If there is space for a plant, I will put one there. If there is no space, I will make one, which is why I now I have a large shelf by the window for maximum sun in winter.
It’s not all my plants, but I tried to show the best* if them. If I had to pick a favourite, it’s the plain old pothos I love. I’m also fond of the polka-dot plants, mainly at how dramatic they are about watering time. The Begonia masoniana  and rex (Shepard), while gorgeous things to look at, are fussy bastards. I am sort of dreading Swedish winter time, and making sure they stay alive in the dry and the dark. The Begonia maculatas, on the other hand- very happy with the care I give them, and love the east-facing window they have, and survived last winter just fine.
I am still learning things, I am very new at this- I only picked this hobby up when I moved here three years ago. A lot of gardening is trial and error; I have killed and almost killed plants from my novice care; I’ve overwatered succulents, underwatered ferns, put below-canopy plants in full sun, and dealt with various fungus and pest problems. The joys of buying plants on a whim, is sometimes you don’t know what you’re bringing home in the soil. 
Gardening -even when apartment bound- has a lovely effect of making you understand the circle of the year, as well as keep you busy with the work of it. It’s still a kind of magic to put seeds into soil and watch them grow; to learn propagation; to eat something you’ve planted. It’s lovely to be surrounded by happy green things, and my mood has improved immensely from seeing and doing this.

african violet update. it’s doing well, i think! i pruned off some of the old leaves and flowers and it’s--
Tumblr media
HUH!? Where did all of these two Miniature African Violets and Polka-Dot Plant come from!? 
ok yes i bought more plants . i liked how the mini(?) african violets have lots of blooms in the middle and i wanna get a nice collection of colors. and i bought the polkadot plant because it was really pretty.
they were selling a purple shamrock as well, which is a plant i’ve had my eye on, but i didn’t end up getting it today because it was a bit large and expensive. next time though... ;-)

Current plant settup! I had to hang something up so my Polka-Dot plant didn’t get direct sun. My aloe and ~other succulent I don’t know the name of~ are also behind there cause I think they’ve been getting a LOT recently and I don’t want them to burn.
