A Life in Miniature 

By Jenny Bahn

Maybe it’s just because I live in New York City (a place notoriously strapped for space), but I am obsessed with the idea of tiny planters. Seashells, thimbles, wine corks, even light bulbs - if it’s tiny, it’s plantable. Throw a tiny succulent in there and you’ve got yourself a miniature garden. The plants are inherently low maintenance; they’ll never grow to unruly proportions, require minimal watering, and can be whipped together in a snap. It’s the perfect starter plant project for a girl with gardening commitment issues.
