Glass Globe Terrarium Planting List

I planted this glass terrarium especially for the readers of October 2018 edition of Vantage Point Magazine.  This is a simple glass globe, planted with some attractive, but easy to find terrarium plants.  You can see all of the plants that I used for this terrarium, in the planting list below.  If you’re interested in any of these plants, click on an individual plant page for more information, where you’ll also find links to every article I have written for that mentions that particular plant.  Scroll down to the bottom of this list for details of all of the suppliers where I purchased the plants for this terrarium.  Here’s a link to my step-by-step guide, showing how I planted this terrarium.
