Easy, dont’ you think?

But you might wonder how long you will keep your lightbulb terrarium, so here is recent discovery to help you really have a terrarium which will last a long time.

The German design studio Nui Studio, took this concept further than any Pinterest board has ever seen by designing a new kind of terrarium that actually does more than just look pretty. The Mygdal plant lamp allows a plant to grow inside it, without the need for direct sunlight or water for an unrestricted amount of time.

LEDs supply enough light so the plants inside the terrarium bulb can photosynthesize. Named after the village of Mygdal (which roughly translates to “fertile soil”) in Denmark, the lamp offers a solution both for people who can’t keep plants alive as well as an attractive light source. The lamps are created as both pendants as well as a standing lamps in two different sizes. Regardless of the version, the lamps are made of aluminum and hand-blown glass.
