That's so awesome!

My grandma had a big round terrarium when I was growing up. I've always wanted one just like it.

WoW, that is just beautiful! It's a real work of art, and it looks so natural...just gorgeous, Larry. Thanks for sharing it, wish mine looked even a quarter as good. May I ask what those plants are that make up the majority of the ones in there? They look sort of like small spider plants, but I don't think so...

Hi Eileen,

Thank you so much for the kind words. It was so much fun making it. The plants you are referring to are tillandsia or air plants. They are a type of bromeliad.
