    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Chris Olsen from Botanica Gardens always has great advice on home and gardening projects.

    Segment 1: Terrariums all the rage
    The trend of the terrariums is hot and furious. Why not decorate with a beautiful piece of glass full of plants? The interesting thing isyou don't always have to use live plants. Silk plants and flowers look great as well. For that matter, you don't even have to use any plants, live or silk. Stuff your terrarium with accessories for that special individual look. Even air plants are great to use. Never limit the possibilities.

    Segment 2: Containers with a glow
    When we place our planted containers on our porches and patios, sometimes we neglect our steps. Dress up your steps with potted containers that also are functional. Take a small 10 inch pot plant with flowers and an assortment of textures and colors and then simply place a LED Solar light in the middle. Now your steps flow with not only color but light.

    Check out the videos for step-by-step instructions! And you can always visit Chris at Botanica Gardens, located at 1601 Rebsamen Park Road, for help on any gardening projects.
