Building Your Own Terrarium It's a lot easier than you may think! First, make sure that you have all the required materials for building your terrarium. The most important of these, of course, is the terrarium itself. Virtually any type of clear plastic or glass container will work just fine. Bottles, fish bowls, jars, you name it. There are even special containers built just for terrariums. Your choices are endless; just make sure that you choose a clear container that's been cleaned with hot soapy water, as tinted or cloudy glass or plastic will interfere with plant growth by reducing light.

UPDATED REVIEW - 12/29/15
Ok so after having these small plants for about 5 months, 2 have so far died; Autumn fern & glowstar fern. The Maidenhair fern I got also isn't doing very good at all. It's not because I haven't taken good care of them, I got the same types from Lowes, also around the same small size & they've grown really large in my greenhouse. Not sure what went wrong but I hope the rest come around. Lowered my previous rating to 3 stars.
*This is my second order* 4 of the 5 plants I received in the first order died (probably froze during shipping)--so I contacted the seller--and a new shipment was mailed the next day!
Seller packed them securely AND included a little air-activated "hand warmer" to ensure the replacement order would survive.
Here they are *thriving* among some mosses in their new home, nearly two weeks after I received them. I just need to add some cute decor & I'll be set!
Unfortunately, though, I was a bit disappointed in what I received. There WERE five tiny plants in 2-inch pots; however, there were duplicates rather than five different types. Also, a couple of the plants arrived without any identification of type and badly root-bound and I seriously doubt that they're actually ferns. While the product page did not say specifically what type of ferns I would receive, it did say that they would all be different ferns. And the photo on the product page clearly shows an assortment of plants that at least resemble ferns. So...not quite what I expected. With shipping cost added, the two tiny ferns that I did end up using became quite expensive at about $11 each.
The tiny plants arrived healthy-looking, although a couple of them were badly root bound as previously mentioned. I'd also ordered a slightly larger Lemon Button Fern from Hirt's at the same time and it arrived in the same box with the tiny fern assortment. While the Lemon Button Fern was very well packaged, the tiny ferns were simply wrapped in a small piece of newspaper, so much of the dirt had fallen out and become embedded in some of the more delicate fronds and leaves when I unwrapped them.
The first order I received had the plants packaged in paper cones that were folded closed to prevent soil/plant from coming apart. The second order had the soil on top of the mini pots closed over with masking tape. They both were received in good condition so I don't know which method was best for plant transportation.
The price is reasonable for what you get. You could always try a local farmer's market or plant nursery. I recommend getting a bunch of items (don't forget sheet moss!) from Hirt's in one order so you save some money on shipping. Recommended.
