Plant Update and Work Day

Since my post on the DIY terrarium a few months ago, the Ceropegia Woodii has grown very quickly. As you can see below, the first picture is how it looks now and the second is what it looked like when I first planted it. I highly recommend this plant to beginners since it is not only beautiful, but easy to take care of and fast growing.

My hanging terrariums are doing quite well also. I cut a few clippings from the Woodii plant above and I'm going to see how they do in the hanging planter. 



These are my marimo! Aren't they cute!? If you haven't heard of marimo, they are underwater moss (actually algae) balls that grow in lakes in Japan and Sweden. They bounce around in their tank! They will float to the top to get more light during the day time and then sink back down in the evening. I have two that I keep in a glass half-sphere hanging on the wall.


I spent a good part of the day creating new jewelry designs for Woodii. Below you can see my elegant bed workshop and some pieces I am currently working on.
