Hello everyone, I've made my first terrarium. It's a little Vietnamese style garden on top of my tank. All the moss and plants are real, except the lotus flowers which I made it out of clay (it took several attempts until I became satisfied with the look of the flowers). I also made the bridge from scratch.

I'm still new to this so all suggestion and criticism are welcome

Thank you.

Very nice. I like the lotus blooms you created, too! Thumbs up

Thank you Sundownr. Because it was my first terrarium, so it took me almost a week to make everything, including the bridge and the lotus flowers.

Thank you BeckyGardener, it took almost 5 attempts until I was able to make it because I had never learned how to make flowers out of clay before.

Thank you for your interest in my little project, BeckyGardener. I have one miniature island and I'm working on a very small terrarium and I will post them soon.

At the mean time, I can post YouTube videos of the same garden but with LED string lights and a fire belly toad.

I hope everyone has a great weekend. Hurray!
