Have you always wanted to have your own garden but you don’t have a piece of land? Well, don’t worry because a terrarium is the perfect solution for people who want to pursue landless gardening.  Terrarium means a small garden inside a container. This container can be made of glass where you can plant different ornamental plants of varied shapes and sizes depending on your area of residence.

Back in the days, terrariums were only used in biological research. Today, however, terrariums have become more popular among busy urban dwellers who want to create a natural feel inside their homes by taking care of plants in an array of attractive and beautiful glass containers.

Despite the rise of different digital printing techniques, silk screen printing remains to be in demand and irreplaceable up to this day and age.
