Since 56 days is a long time - I'm going to trick myself into thinking it's spring. I'm going to make my own container terrarium. No soil required, no dirt under my finger tips but maybe it'll take my mind off of the cold.
Winter is the perfect time to try your hand at air plants. Only 3 things required:
Terrarium - you can stop by your local craft store for a great selection.
Air plant - some nurseries are open all year. Check online for your nearest local store. They come in a variety of colors and they love warm air and regular moisture.
Spanish Moss - see above
And if you're not feeling like a DIY project, my local Lowe's sells a ready made air plant for $7.98 - now if I could just blink my eyes and make winter go away I would.
