Despite their association with all things American, apples actually hail from what is modern Kazakhstan. The only apples native to America are crab apples, like Hewe’s Crab Apple.

It was one of Thomas Jefferson’s major cider varieties, with trees filling a large portion of the north orchards at Monticello.
When planting a hanging terrarium, it is vital to create a mini environment where all the plants flourish equally, says Joyce Mason-Monheim, floral director for Accent Decor and a member of the American Institute of Floral Designers. The orb-shaped hanging vase planted with succulents shows how you should use all succulents or all cactus in the planting because they require the same amount of light and water.
In this modern terrarium, floral designer Laurel LeMaistre used a combination of natural found material, such as birch bark and swirled branches along with petite orchid plants, and polished river stones. Orchids are a staple flower for all modern design, and their simplicity and longevity make them a perfect choice for terrarium work, says LeMaistre, a member of the American Institute of Floral Designers.
