What you need to florariuma?
Create such beauty is quite able to anyone. To make florarium, you need a clear vase of any shape and size. It can be round or square tank, a large glass bottle, etc. The next step is to select one or more small plants and prepare moss. The last thing you will need to complete the composition - is a variety of accessories: seashells, colored stones, crystals, beads, unusual forms and other branches.
Here, everything is limited only by your imagination. If you wish, you can make florarium no living plants, which in the interior will look just as good. You can make a miniature "rock garden" or rural landscape, erecting a house of matches or a toy windmill.
Thus, the materials chosen. It's time to talk about how to make florarium hands. Mini-garden behind the glass in a fully transparent closed containers implies a special microclimate. This means that not every plant can become an inhabitant florariuma.
In a closed container formed its own ecosystem, which is high humidity, temperature and internal gas exchange. With this plant in florariume can easily do for a long time without watering. The limited volume makes it possible to grow in florariume only slow-growing specimens. It should be remembered that such a composition, though will decorate your interior for a long time, but still temporarily - a plant sooner or later have to replant in a pot.
First you need to decide where it will be florarium. And if you're going to put him against the wall, its elements must be positioned so that the back was high, and in front of the small details. If he will stand in the center of the table, the decorative elements should be placed so that the beautiful view opens on all sides. That is the biggest and highest elements should be placed in the center of the composition.
Then, select a plant that will be the basis of the composition of your florariuma.

Above ground close moss to create a beautiful background. You can place the plants in small pots - plastic cups, which should also impose moss. Or just try to wrap a cup with green moss and place it in the interior florariuma. Then, without breaking composition, at any time you can replace the plant if it is lost or outgrown views.

But then you need to carefully select plants suitable for the conditions of detention. Because the flowers that need a dry rest period (a rare watering or even lack thereof) will not be able to exist in a soil with plants that can not survive without irrigation.

Now you can create a composition such as your imagination tells you. We offer a little advice on the design: it is desirable that in florariume present some semantic accent - an unusual shell, bright stone, a flowering plant or something like that. This will make your garden more harmonious and complete.
If you do your composition using living plants, it is desirable to put florarium closer to a window or provide him with additional illumination.
