Terrarium display at SMPL tomorrow

Spring Lake Garden Club members recently met at the home of Pat Moore to build terrariums.  The terrariums will be on display at the San Marcos Library Saturday, April 11, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Terrariums are glass containers filled with green plants and various decorative elements such as colorful rocks and small figurines. When sealed with lids, terrariums with small plants water themselves; however, succulents and cacti grow best in unsealed containers. Easy to maintain, they add a colorful splash of green to any room with adequate sunlight.
