Its lovely burgundy-red vertical stalks and flowers lend Saxifraga stolonifera the nickname strawberry begonia. While the plant rapidly matures, it only reaches a height of 8 inches. Even when the wispy flowers aren't in bloom, the heart-shape foliage offers a two-tone pattern of green and deep red. To propagate for containers or other terrariums, simply snip off one of the runners. If well-tended, the plant will last a long time, as do many other terrarium bloomers. top plant, glasses, colors, gardens, hous, strawberri, flowers, 5 years, ferns

Materials to create a terrarium
Terrariums are a beautiful addition to desks, dining room tables, or other well-lit spots. Check out our easy step-by-step instructions on how to plant a terrarium.
Plumeria Give plumeria a warm, very bright spot and protection from drafts. Keep it moderately moist in spring and summer and reduce watering in fall and winter. The tree may go dormant and lose its leaves but will begin to grow again once days get warmer. Move the pot outdoors in the summer to ensure it gets plenty of light. fragranc, tree, indoor plant, hous plant, indoor house plants, flower

Garden Tip: Passionflowers are fast growers and will need support, such as trellis to climb on. Because they grow so fast, don't fertilize them much. In fact, too much plant food can encourage lots of leafy growth and few blooms. fast growing climbing plants, colors, exotic plants, bay windows, asthma, garden tips, fragrant flowers, indoor house plants, passion flower
