A terrarium collaboration with Pottery Barn where I created a template for each store to create terrarium classes and taught in-store, in-person classes in cities around the USA like Los Angles, Portland, Houston, Atlanta, La Jolla, Detroit, and Charolette is one I look back on fondly.

Here's a quick take: Fill your jar or bowl terrarium with foliage plants or succulents. For a super low-maintenance garden, try pairing a hanging vessel with air plants. Remember to keep the plants in your open terrarium moist - not wet. Keep track of how quickly the soil becomes dry during the first few days to determine a misting schedule. Place a pretty stylish mister close by so you’ll always remember to water.
