When it comes to growing a garden, some of us have green thumbs and some of us are all thumbs. If you have the touch of death when it comes to leafy greens, or simply haven’t the patience for a plant, worry not, we’ve got a few easy-going plant suggestions for you.

Bamboo
Quite possibly the easiest plant on the planet to grow, bamboo is is technically a grass, but it grows like a weed. “Running bamboo” can quickly overtake a yard, so unless you plan to raise a family of pandas, you’re better off growing this variety in a pot. Alternately  you can go with “clumping bamboo,” which has a less itinerant temperament. Both varieties are pretty hands-off plants, requiring only occasional watering, and able to tolerate lots of sun.

If You Prefer a Varied Landscape 


Flowering and foliage plants make a stunning display when arranged inside a Wardian case―a glass-paned terrarium with a hinged vent on top.
 
 What you’ll need: A roomy Wardian case; pebbles or aquarium gravel; activated aquarium charcoal; potting mix; sheet moss; a mister with distilled water; and at least five plants. Real Simple used a parlor palm seedling, a ‘Red Splash’ polka dot, a lady’s slipper orchid, a ‘Pink Starlight’ earth star, a Pearcea, and miniature ivy. Also consider a heart fern, a mosaic plant, a dwarf begonia, creeping fig, and baby’s tears.

If You Prefer a Single Plant

You don’t need to expend a lot of effort to put together an eye-catching terrarium. Get a lush look by using a simple container and just one plant.
 
 What you’ll need: A glass cloche (a bell-shaped cover) and a saucer, or a large-mouthed apothecary or cookie jar; pebbles for drainage; sterilized soilless potting mix; a mister filled with distilled water; small scissors; a flowerpot; and a humidity-loving tropical houseplant, such as a button fern or a flame violet, that is compact or slow growing. If you’re having difficulty finding one, read the plant labels or ask a salesperson for help.

Before You Begin 

Aside from the terrarium itself, you don’t have to buy any special implements to assemble or tend to it. A few standard gardening tools―and a couple that you can make yourself―will do.

  • Rake and shovel: Use a piece of string to tie a pickle or dessert fork to one chopstick and a demitasse or iced-tea spoon to another, says Marilyn Burke, who teaches terrarium workshops at Classic Country, a home store in East Chatham, New York.
