Indoor garden supply #1: A Terrarium..!
With so many commitments going on at the same time suddenly, the hubby and I are feeling the heat and starting to get a little too stressed. Many researches have shown that immersing yourself in nature has a positive impact on your mental and spiritual well-being. That said, we’ve decided to take a step backward and try to live every moment to the fullest. Afterall, we can’t worry too much sometimes and it’s better to let nature (pun intended) takes it course.
For our very first “relaxation” step, we’ve decided to add more plants at home in hope that it’ll bring out the zen / peaceful mode. As our house is unable to hold a massive tranquil garden, we’ve settled on the terrarium option. Terrarium is currently in trend and can easily be used as a decorative piece for your home. Terrariums can be placed on your tabletop, stuck on the wall, or even be hung from the ceiling. The flexibility of terrariums is appreciated by many because, as usual, space constraint at home is one of the considerations. For those looking for a great housewarming gift or even a farewell gift for your soon-to-be ex-colleague, you can always consider terrariums. Besides decorating your home, some terrariums are very compact and can be placed at your workstation without taking up much space. We’ve shortlisted some beautiful terrarium for your reference.
The first terrarium that won our hearts was the simple yet elegant MyGift Modern Glass Pyramid Tabletop Succulent Plant Terrarium Box.

This terrarium box measures around 5.5″ x 5.5″ x 7.25″ which is considered as small for some but for us, it makes the perfect centerpiece for our coffee table. The minimalist pyramid-shaped terrarium box features a black metal frame, glass walls, and an easy-to-access opening for placing items inside. The black metal frame brings about a chic feel while the glass walls allows a holistic 360° appreciation of the plant. Just bear in mind that this terrarium box can’t be sealed completely and it’s not water-tight. For easy maintenance, the hubby and I got artificial succulents and it looked great! In case you were wondering, we got our artificial succulents from CEWOR, which comes in a pack of 10 pieces. It requires a little trimming here and there and definitely value-for-money! The classy MyGift Modern Glass Pyramid Tabletop Succulent Plant Terrarium Box is the perfect addition for any home so what are you still waiting for? Get yours today!
