The Plant Window – The most successful of all terraria is the plant window. It is essentially a window with an external pane or panes of glass (doubled-glazed to provide winter insulation) and an internal fully-glazed door which can be opened to get to the space within. At the base of this space is a tray filled with gravel in which the pots are housed and then hidden with damp peat.
Plant windows are a feature of many homes in Germany, Scandinavia, Holland and parts of the U.S – but are a rarity in UK houses. This type of display is generally built at the time of house construction – it is a difficult task to construct one on to an existing building.

The living room is the area where the family gathers. It is here that the adults relax, the children play and everyone seeks comfort. It is also the spot in the average home where most of the indoor plants can be found.
It is here where one usually finds the showiest and most expensive plants, and yet nearly every living room can be improved by introducing new types and altering the arrangement of the ones which are already there. The thing to avoid is scattering a few pots of nondescript greenery and run-of-the-mill flowering plants around the room – a couple on the windowsill, one on the mantlepiece, another on the TV set and so on.
