Default Hanging mini aquatic gardens

I admit liking anything that hangs. Particularly living things that hang. This is another photo out of my "idea folder" on my desktop that I've saved for a while. It's not my photo and I don't recall where it came from but I loved the concept of mini aquatic gardens hanging in front of a window somewhere. I never could find them for sale and it wasn't for lack of trying to find an online source. I think you'll like these as much as I did. They're simple and elegant at the same time.

Default Did you find the glassware?

Just wondering if you did actually find the glassware and were able to do it. If so, where did you find the glassware?

Not only where did you get the glassware, but what are you growing in them?

They're not as graceful, but here are bubble rooting vases

I think these come with plants - sit down before you look at the price

I never could find it anywhere. I looked, I had friends look, everyone looked and we all came up empty handed. Sorry about that Wolflover.

What was the price? I couldn't see it.

I liked the root starters at your first link. Cute and along the same lines.

I'd really sell my soul to be able to find some of the mini-aquatic gardens from that photo I saved a while back. You have to admit those are sharp looking.

I followed the link and they were about $70 each. That's a little to rich for my blood. But they are beautiful.

Hey - I just had a brainstorm (OK, maybe it was more of a dust devil).

Does your area have those craft fair type things that have a booth where someone makes the little glass figures or the big glass vases and bowls?

Or one of the hands-on learn-a-craft type workshops where someone works with molten glass - even if it's just to make those glass beads for necklaces?

If you print your pictures, you just might find a craftsman who would take on the challenge of figuring out how to make you one.

Still no luck on the glass globes, but I stumbled across a different "living things that hang" idea for a porch or under a tree-somewhere you can water them without getting your floors wet.

It's a wire florist globe that you line with moss, add potting mix and your plants. They suggest english ivy (don't cringe- it's not in the ground) or small herbs.
