Bottle gardens are quite simply clear glass containers in which you grow a group of plants. Bottle gardens work especially well for plants that require high humidity, such as ferns and insect eating bog plants, and are very easy to maintain.

Description
First decide what sort of garden you want to grow. Tropical plants like warm temperatures and high humidity while temperate woodland plants like cool shady positions. Place an inch or so of sand or gravel in the bottom covered with a few inches of container mix, plant your chosen plants , water and position in the required position. Remember the container will trap considerable heat so keep out of direct sunlight, and water only sparingly as moisture is contained and recycled within container.

Dedication
Bottle gardening needs very little dedication, as long as a group of plants are chosen that do not grow to big. watering and maintenance are minimal, and the plant leaves do not attract dust from the room.

Cost
The plants and maintenance cost very little, the container on the other hand can be a discarded glass container, old aquariums work well, or you can purchase a beautiful leaded glass terrarium that resembles a miniature conservatory, brandy snifters and clear glass wine jugs are also very popular. Use your imagination and flair to create a unique display.
