I still haven’t exactly honed my green thumb (read: I even kill cacti) but I’ve heard that keeping plants in a terrarium is an especially easy method for keeping them alive. At least I’ll be less likely to let them dry out. I think one of these pear-shaped Recycled Glass Terrariums from Viva Terra would look especially cool on a kitchen window ledge. At $49 they’re a little pricey, but if it will keep me from killing a plant every other month, then it practically pays for itself. –Erica P.
