Glancing at the date of my last post explains the interior resistance when it comes to putting word to screen. Let me be the first to welcome myself back to the world of the writing. Being the cool kids that you are I know it’s not news that creating or owning a terrarium is where it’s at. If you’re in Portland, Oregon sign up for one of Artemisia’s workshops or just descend on the S.E. shop. This popular retail venture is exclusively about terrarium varietals. If you’re not so close to the Pacific Northwest order up a kit or even trust your own instincts with a decadent array of supplies, decorative and live. If just in the research stage you might want to check out this book.
There’s also no reason to leave the sofa if that’s more your style. Rowanberry 128 on Etsy has this deer and mushroom delight.
That said, something crossed my consciousness that will appeal both to those who like to garden in a small tight space (terrarium) with perhaps a master of the universe mindset and whom also might have a small technology addiction. Hello to the Samuel Wilkinson designed Biome Flora Terrarium. Get this, the delicate balance of this petite eco-system is monitored, controlled even by your iPhone or IPad. The designer refers to this as a “live Tamagochi” whose environment can be anything from tropical to desert. This piece was part of a ‘Slow Tech’ show so no details on production or retail that I’m aware of.
