Miniature Plants - Buyer's Guide for Terrariums and Fairy Gardens

One of the most important aspects of designing a fairy garden or terrarium is finding the right plants for your space. The search obviously begins by looking for miniature plants to include in your tiny green gardens. Then you have to consider the water, humidity and light requirements of each plant to determine if they can thrive in the same environment.

I would love to ask some folks, who are mixing succulents and ferns in terrariums, what their little ecosystems look like after a few months. Once I get my terrarium and fairy gardens set up, I hope to share with you how things progress so perhaps we can learn together what works and what clearly doesn’t.

In the meantime, this section of Tiny Green Gardens should help you find the right miniature plants to buy for your fairies and container gardens.
