The Cincinnati Flower Show was last weekend and I had a great time on my visit.
Delhi Flower & Landscape booth for their Terrarium and Air Wreath workshop. The workshop was $45 and came with everything you need including the tutorial from the great team at Delhi Flower & Landscape to take home a delightful garden treat!
* Top right (bumpy one) - Moon Valley

* Top left - Spider plant (okay - not 100% sure because I didn't use it)
* Middle left - Pink Fittonia
* Bottom left (spikey) - Cryptanthus
Ferti-lome which Delhi Flower & Garden supplied for us.
Aren't we adorable? (And see - I'm wearing makeup again!)
And here's something I didn't know - this shape is perfect for a terrarium because the fact that the opening is smaller - keeps water from escaping and drying the plants out. Who knew?
After all your plants are in place, we used this fantastic thing called Sheet Moss! It's fun stuff! It's very wet - but you put it around all of the plants and tuck it in all the nooks and crannys. This keeps the soil moist and helps prevent drying. It's so fun - you just tear off pieces in whatever shape you need and tuck them in and then press lightly into the soil. It was like I was putting mini grass in my mini yard!
I have to say - thanks so much to the Delhi Flower & Garden Center. Tim & Pam were fantastic. And - here's something cool - if you want to do something like this - or any other type of potted adventure - Delhi F&G has a Potting Bar! If you bring in your pot (or you can get one from them) - they'll help you plant it all! You just pay for the plants (you do need to buy their plants) - but they'll supply the charcoal, potting soil, etc.
Be sure to check out the Delhi Flower & Garden Center and the Cincinnati Flower Show next year!
