Use Terrariums for Decorative Purposes


If you’re ever on the search for something that will amplify your indoor space using your plants, you can never go wrong with  terrariums.

For garden lovers, you may have come across this piece at many points along your journey, although for those who are new to gardening, these might just become your next favorite decorative piece.

Between an assortment of intricate designs and shapes, we have plenty to choose from here at H Potter. First, it’s important to understand what they are and how they work.

What are terrariums?

Often made of clear glass, terrariums are small, enclosed planter spaces that are used to house your plants. As you shop for them, you’ll learn that they often come in two different types: open or closed, although many of the ones we have in stock give you the option to do both.

To use them is very simple. You just cover the bottom of the terrarium with pebbles, charcoal chips, and soil and add your plants to them.

The result will be a beautiful display of your plant that will only require you to take care of them with the proper amount of sunlight and water depending on its type.

Some plants that go well with these planters are succulents, ferns, and air plants.

Other than that, the choice is yours to decide where you’d like to place yours. One thing that makes terrariums so unique is that they are versatile in terms of where you want to place them. Below are suggestions for where you can add yours.


Herbs are an excellent choice to add more greenery to your kitchen. With our glass terrariums, you’ll have the chance to turn your herbs into a gorgeous display, while still giving it the chance to grow and have them at hand.

Plants have the power to purify your air and enhance your general mood. There’s no better place to have an indoor planter with you than right at your desk as you are doing work. They are a beautiful reminder of the outdoors and may serve as the additional inspiration you need to get your tasks done in your home office.
