You might remember my September Practical Magic Party post and the terrariums we created for the celebration.
Despite having been opened only twice and never receiving water in addition to the original "potting" soak, the fern in the large terrarium and the who knows what in the small glass jar are both flourishing.
The fern is developing new "branches" while the who knows what has managed to fill the jar and is currently attempting a jail break (we'll probably have to replant her in the spring ... she's likely ground cover and a silly glass terrarium isn't going to keep her from spreading).
And guess what else? We now know that mushrooms grow at the speed of Holy Shit Where'd That Come From because our fern was all by herself on Tuesday, but by Wednesday she'd been joined by a tiny white mushroom friend.
Thursday a second mushroom appeared.
We're expecting a tiny fairy to built a cottage beneath the fern fronds tomorrow.
