Introduction: Small Plant Terrarium

About: I like to make inventions, usually out of paper and stuff I have. I have a few projects that i haven't put up on instructables yet...

I made a few of these a week ago. This one sits on my desk as a fun little thing to look at. Hopefully the light that I shine on it provides enough light so it wont die or wilt. Just asking, does a flourescent lightbulb provide enough types of light(ultraviolet radiation, etc...) so the plant doesnt die?

    I would add small pea gravel on bottom for drainage and some activated carbon for when you do open it next time the smell won't knock you out.

    Thanks! I got a little plastic container from Michael's(A arts and crafts store.) I got some fine soil(I sifted through my regular potting soil) and I put in 4 basil plants. I put not too much water, because it will never need water again since it is covered and like a terrarium

    Thanks, I use the lamp daily, so a grow light might not be the best solution, but thanks anyways, so far the plants are growing, they move towards the light when I move their position.

    That's cool, another problem with grow lights is their cost, I should try a flourescent light next time I grow plants inside.
