If you don’t have a green thumb and find that rearing a plant is a tough challenge, it’s time to get your hands on a terrarium instead. Terrariums are tiny self-sustaining gardens typically in transparent glass jars, and won’t require much care apart from watering – just place them in an area with sufficient sunlight and they will thrive.

This is an easy way to spruce up your home with greenery without the added responsibilities, and here’s where you can get affordable ones in Singapore. 

If you’d rather make your own, check out a list of affordable terrarium workshops from just $22 here.
