#38  Add a little greenery to your interior space with an attention-grabbing terrarium! Not only are they easy to make and maintain they are also great oxygen boosters. Choose an interesting glass container – be it a vase, fishbowl or glass jar – play with various shapes and sizes. Layer pebbles, activated charcoal, and potting soil in your container and then add small plants that are well-suited to terrarium life. Place your terrariums in a well-lit spot like your desk or coffee / side table.
