Kate Bailey Beaker Terrariums at fernseed.com



I love these beaker terrariums by Kate Bailey and featured at fernseed.com. I, personally, am always very hesitant to use containers with writing or logos to build a terrarium. For some reason I always think I will regret it. But I really love the beaker with the measurements on it- I am truly inspired by this one. Perhaps I should start raiding the labs at work for my next round of terrariums.... haha- I'm sure the researchers will love that. I can see it now:

confused researcher: "Why do you want these old, dirty beakers?"

me: "To grow plants in-"

confused researcher: (Confused face and shaking of head, followed by warning re. the chemicals that have been housed in said container.)

me: "Oh." (Reduced to living in terror that supposed chemical residue in said container(s) will make me sick if I take home.)

  1. They seem rather small for the sort of plants I grow, but they would be terrific for germinating. You'll have to take up glass-blowing next!

  3. I just got a bunch of pyrex beakers of different sizes that my dad has had since the 60's. Gonna use them all for terrariums. Sizes range from 5000ml down to 20ml. Nice job!!!
