When encased in glass, plants thrive with almost no help from outside their little enclosed world, so you can host a plant almost anywhere--in your apartment where the air is dry or in your cubicle where there's little natural light. Tucked inside something crystal and contained, the bounty of the forest or treasures from the beach or the meadow can merge seamlessly into your home or office environment.
