La Jolla’s Adelaide’s is bringing back the terrarium

Adelaide’s Flowers held a terrarium-building workshop Aug. 14, where 10 guests got to make their own plant sculptures. A terrarium, also called a vivarium or a glass garden, is a clear container filled with plants. Choosing between round or square glass vessels, different colors and textures of moss and types of rocks to act as a base, each participant received personalized attention on plant selection for filling them. The next terrarium-building workshop is 1 p.m. Sept. 29 at 7766 Girard Ave., La Jolla. To register, call
