In January our green thumbs begin itching to plant. Choosing seeds and dreaming of warm days only takes you so far… but building a terrarium is a quick way to get your hands in soil now! Follow these instructions to make miniature gardens inside even if snow is falling outside your window.
Hoyas, also called wax plant or porcelain flower, are regaining popularity as beloved houseplants. It’s hard not to end up a collector as each one is uniquely different with foliage color, size, shape, and heavenly-scented bloom. If there’s a plant with the reputation for being one anybody can grow… it’s a hoya. They seem to thrive on neglect, preferring drought-like conditions, tight pots, and rare feeding. Once they’ve reached maturity they flower regularly and the scent is unforgettable!
