Terrarium rejuvination

I’ve had two terrariums for the past several years, but the moss keeps dying. The fact that I can’t even keep moss alive isn’t a surprise to me, but it’s still frustrating. Last time my terrariums died, I lived in Indy and had to order moss off Etsy. I rebuilt the terrariums with North Carolina moss and documented it here. Now that the NC moss has bit the dust, it was time to restore them again. Lucky for me, I now live in a state where moss covers everything that doesn’t move. Literally.

What a sad state of affairs for my 1945 Times Square kissing couple.

My farm scene was a hot mess, too!

So I went outside and around the corner of the house to this concrete block…thing… It’s basically a moss garden.

Would seriously like to know what the heck this thing actually is, by the way.

Scraped up some pretty little sections of moss…

Gorgeous, damp, and freshly watered with Washington rain!

And I got to work!

First, I finished the farm scene.

And I went to put my kissing couple back into their terrarium and their little stick broke off. I considered leaving them out, but ultimately I couldn't. I love them too much!

Here they are, back where they belong.

This time, I’m going to put them somewhere less out-of-the way with the hopes that I remember to water them once a month. But if the moss goes dead again, I happen to know where to get more!
