Would you recommend Terrariums?

I have recently learnt about this business, which put smaller plants into glass jars and use the condensation produced by the plant to create low maintenance plants. Would you say this is a good option to consider for apartment gardening?

Interesting idea! I wonder how the inside of the glass looks after a while.

After having thought about it, this could be ideal for us. Almost no watering, just dust off the jars occasionally.

I've seen a few events in Manchester, UK  that teach you how to make these, I think they make such a great addition to any household.

#2 I agree in that they seem ideal! It seems like you can get a good variety of plants in them as well!

I like open terrariums, especially for succulents! I think it is really trendy and they are fun to make. However, I have no experience with closed terrariums, all I know is that once opened they smell very bad. 🙈

#5 Oh is that true? That doesn't sound too good! I wonder if there is a way to stop the odour?

#9: I would have liked to see more of the actual bottle garden in the video, but perhaps it isn't as photogenic as the ones they did show.
