A few months ago Megan George of The Zen Succulent (Raleigh, NC) reached out to me to see if I would be interested in reviewing her new book Modern Terrarium Studio. I was intrigued. I have "challenges" with keeping plants alive (ask my husband!), but surprisingly my few succulents are still living.
Modern Terrarium Studio is a fascinating book about living landscapes: air plants, succulents, design inspiration and DIY projects. She includes valuable information on plant health and care (something I need!) As well as tips for creating arrangements based on your personal aesthetic.
I especially enjoyed the section "25 plants to use in your terrariums." Up until now I picked succulents based on texture and color. Now I know the specific names, light and water care.
Megan also includes several easy to follow DIY projects for creating terrariums. I love the mix of textures and material throughout the book. Rope, moss, wood, brass planters, ornaments. This book exemplifies the perfect blend of style, class, and information.
