I’m researching a plan for my brother’s birthday and came across terrariums.

My brother loves plants. He and his wife have a potted garden on their balcony at their apartment. He also wants to plant and prune a bonsai tree.

I thought a terrarium would be unique and fun gift that I can make myself.

The Terrarium Man has been a great resource.

Or I could purchase a terrarium (pictured above) from Paula Hayes for $4000-$60000. Absolutely beautiful, however, I don’t think I will be giving up an arm and a leg and signing my life away (you have to sign an agreement saying you will personally be responsible for it because it is art).
