    Did you know?

    A man named Nathaniel Bagshaw Ward is often credited with inventing the terrarium. Back in the early 1800s, he placed an insect chrysalis along with some mould inside a glass bottle, with the aim of watching the insect emerge from the chrysalis. Instead, he observed seedlings and sprouts blooming from the bottle. Nathaniel came to the conclusion that the glass bottle created a protected sealed environment in which plants could thrive. And thus, the science of terrariums was born!
