HGTV Doesn't Quite Hit the Mark

I was disappointed in this bare-bones terrarium tutorial spotted at the HGTV website.  At least they included the note about sphagnum moss and charcoal to ensure filtration levels for the soil.

But I can tell you just by looking at the above photo that neither of those plants are suited for terrarium life.  That one on the left looks like a mini parlor palm of some sort and that puppy will never take to the humid terrarium environment well.  Whatever that plant on the right is - it already looks half-wilted.

Your best bet is to stick to ferns and moisture and shade loving plants folks!
