Last summer, I read an article about terrariums making a comeback and was inspired to grow something. I even did some research. My experiment in indoor gardening didn’t last. I tried. I really tried. It is the fault of the big monster oak tree in front of our house. While we enjoy the shade (and the much lower electric bills during summer), it means we can only grow light-hating, ugly plants inside. Actually not even those survived and I bought plants that do kind of like light. (They were pretty!) While they looked fine and fancy on day one, they soon were a dead, withered embarrassment. My husband just looked at them day after day and shook his head.
