Make Your Own Tu Bishvat Terrarium

Marvel at the beauty of how a seed transforms into a plant by making your own mini greenhouse in a glass jar.


Choose seeds that germinate quickly, such as bean or pea seeds. You will have almost instant gratification, as these seeds generally begin to visibly grow in as little as two days.
