Glass houses: Not so great for stone-throwing purposes, but pretty excellent for growing plants, as these stylish West Elm terrariums demonstrate.

The terrariums trap condensation, which makes them perfect places for small plants and succulents to thrive, but you could use these in lieu of bell jars to display decorative objects instead. Or, you could do both, like the super-cool company Twig Terrariums does. You grow, girl!

    This is beyond cool. I actually have an empty spot in the living room that has been needing something, but I couldn't quite put my finger on it. I tried pictures. Random collections. Now I know it needs a terrarium. Whodathunkit?!

    Briana, are you a plant hoarder? I've seen a ton of plant-related delights coming from you. I love it!

    Hmm. Let's get someone from Southern California to trade climates with both of us…

    I adore terrariums, but I cannot keep plants alive. Am I hopeless?

    • Liz_HGTV says:

      Marianne! I am happy to report that I've kept my Twig terrarium alive for over a month, even with my black thumb. There's hope for you!
