The terrarium trend is big right now, and I love that homeowners are embracing bringing plants indoors - it improves air quality and reminds us of the beauty of the natural world. Here's a way to display succulents without consuming pricey new glass vessels:  repurpose your lightbulbs. Clear lightbulbs (preferably used ones that you are replacing) can be upcycled into beautiful hanging terrariums.

Wardian Cases Made Gardening Obsessions Possible

Wardian Cases Made Gardening Obsessions Possible | Terrariums | Scoop.it

Saturday’s article on Terrariums referenced Wardian cases as the origin of the modern day terrarium. Dr. Nathaniel Ward, a 19th century doctor and natural history hobbyist, is credited as the inventor of terrariums, and the original terrarium was called a Wardian case, after him.

The Wardian case was also used to transport plants over long distances, making it possible to grow plants in places far from their natural habitats. Believe it or not, the Wardian case is credited for making the British obsession with tea possible!

Before the Wardian case was invented, it was nearly impossible to grow Chinese tea plants outside of China. The Wardian case allowed for Chinese tea plants to be successfully transported to India, and from there, the India tea industry exploded.

During Victorian times when the Wardian case was invented, the gardening obsession of the time was fern growing. After the Wardian case was invented, this was quickly followed by an orchid growing obsession. Again, this would not have been possible without the Wardian case.

Down to Earth: How to grow your own terrarium

Down to Earth: How to grow your own terrarium | Terrariums | Scoop.it

The invention of the terrarium, as we know it today, is credited to Nathaniel Ward, a 19th-century doctor and natural history hobbyist.

Ward noticed that plants were taking root inside a covered insect jar he was using to hatch a sphinx moth. He realized his miniature greenhouse was protecting the plants enough that they were able to grow and thrive. For four years, he watched them grow, with no water added to the bottle and the cover never removed.

Ward experimented with growing other plants in containers and published a book in 1842 called “On the Growth of Plants in Closely Glazed Cases.” The publication of the book led to the development of “Wardian cases,” or large, enclosed containers for growing delicate plants and transporting plants over long distances. The home terrariums used today are often small, ornamental versions of the Wardian case.
