This is it... I have been drooling over it ever since she found it in a thrift shop earlier this year...
She bought it and then never did anything with it, so it was a candidate for the downsize.
I am thinking of turning it into a living mini scene...
The plants in this bowl with mini George have all been living there for over two years! So I know it can be done. This sits on my dining room table. It seems to do just fine.
I forget the name and I didn't save the tag. It's some kind of slow growing succulent.
Wherever the tiny plants land, whenever they fall off of the edge of the leaves, is where they grow. I really like them...
They are a relative of the "Mexican Hat Plant" that is with George in the second photo.
Tessie and Zar are now having tea and cookies. They are making all kinds of plans for the new terrarium... I heard Zar say that they need a parrot on a perch. To which Tessie replied, "And of course, we will need some reptiles... I have snakes and lizards... And Friskie, my gator will finally have a place of his own!
So much for planning. I may as well start taking notes. They are going to plan the whole thing. I am just along for the ride!
Back to the terrarium. See you tomorrow.

Hi Casey. That is an interesting terrarium! Why not have both a place for Tessie
and Zar and a place for plants. And all those desert animals Tessie mentioned.
Some of your succulents would look good made in mini size for my greenhouse.
Fun to check in and see what you've been doing! Love your live mini garden idea.
I've been thinking about making one myself. Been thinking about doing a lot of things but haven't done anything lately!
Hope you have a great 4th of July.
Phyllisa, it's almost a given that the Terrible Two will take over. I have a tutorial for making mini cacti and succulents back a ways on the blog. Just put cactus in the search box.
Go for it Kathi! We can work on it together!
Wow! So nice to have a friend who thinks about you when they are downsizing and they know what you like. That's a really cool piece. I can't wait to see what you do with it.
