Cloche Terrariums - or Bell Jar Terrariums

Cloche or bell jar terrariums are an interesting variation on the traditional terrarium. They are named after a victorian style hat called a cloche. Typically they are a dish or base with a bell shaped glass that goes over it. You can put your plants inside then place the glass Cloche right over it. It is a neat variation on the typical terrarium. In a way it is an upside down terrarium.

 

I have a nice tutorial on making a cloche terrarium. Inside it has a scene from the movie "Brave" and some nice blue lights as wisps: The Brave Cloche Terrarium

My recommendation!

Cloches tend to be expensive! And if you are new to terrarium making you might want to start out with an apothecary jar. Although, if you have trouble with a cloche you can always just clean it out and start over! But if you are just trying this terrarium making thing out to see if you like it you can start less expensive with a nice apothecary jar! That tutorial is here.
