Put together by the staff of Fourwords, the garden division of the Japanese chain Actus Interiors, the work offers a history and general background about terrarium gardening, the practice of growing and keeping plants in small glass containers. After explaining what a terrarium is and how it is best maintained in various environments, the authors provide simple instructions about how to build three types of small-scale terrariums with step-by-step illustrations. The projects range from simple hanging terrariums involving air plants and moss in a glass jar hung from linen cord to a more complicated little garden box involving multiple plants and a layer of stones on top of a bed of Seramis. "Simply adding green to a room makes it a space where you can relax," the authors write, asking, "Why not try incorporating this healing and decorative item into your daily life?"
