This is a simple wooden box, filled halfway with potting soil and then topped off with a funky chunk of wood with ferns and lichens and other treasures.
The white container is an old glass light fixture, and the one on bottom is a jar from the kitchen. When I water the moss on top, it drains and wets the stones, shells, and driftwood beneath.
This one is a hanging basket that previously held sewing notions. I lined it with a hanging basket liner from the store, these cost under $2!

I live in the Pacific Northwest, where the forests are thick with mosses, ferns and many other life forms. I gathered a few chunks of this abundant life on a hike I went on. I brought them back to my apartment in the city and created a few very nice little mini-forest gardens in various containers I had around my place. I used containers that allow for drainage, like wooden boxes and baskets. These are lovely and easy to care for. Just keep a spray bottle around and mist them often. About once a week, put them in the shower and give them a good rain.
