Miniscapes : Create Your Own Terrarium


The idea of growing plants in containers is certainly not a new one. Sea travellers in the 1700's would use sealed transparent cases to transport plants on long journeys by sea. Merchants would import ferns, orchids and exotic plants from warmer areas in the world. They were an effective way of controlling temperature and moisture levels thus keeping the plants alive. Today, terrariums are the perfect type of garden for the apartment or city dweller starved of nature and lacking space, time or patience for maintenance. A terrarium is a miniature landscape with small plants, rocks, soil, moss all within a clear glass container. These tiny gardens often simulate real life landscapes. This book will guide you step-by-step through the process of putting together your own beautiful living sculpture that can be adored all year round, whatever the weather outside. Miniscapes covers all the basics of soil and rocks, moss, tools, propagation, choosing your plants and containers and assembling your tiny landscape. You will learn the skills to create and maintain your own healthy happy terrariums that are cheap to create and super easy to maintain. 16 projects cover four different biomes: Desert, Forest, Carnivorous, and Air plants. Each project can be adapted to use equipment you already have at home, tapping into the upcycled/recycled trend.

In this rare window into Zulu mysticism, Vusamazulu Credo Mutwa breaks the bonds of traditional silence to share his personal experiences as a sangoma-a Zulu shaman. Set against the backdrop of post-colonial South Africa, Zulu Shamanrelays the first-person accounts of an African healer and reveals the cosmology of the Zulu. Mutwa begins with the compelling story of his personal journey as an English-trained Christian schoolteacher who receives a calling to follow in his grandfather's footsteps as a shaman and keeper of folklore. He then Miniscapes : Create Your Own Terrarium download epub tells the stories of his ancestors, including creation myths; how evil came to the world; the adventures of the trickster god Kintu; and Zulu relations with the "fiery visitors," whom he likens to extraterrestrials. In an attempt to preserve the knowledge of his ancestors and encourage his vision of a world united in peace and harmony, Mutwa also shares previously guarded secrets of Zulu healing and spiritual practices: including the curing power of the sangomaand the psychic powers of his people.
