Hi Insom!

I read through your posts and read about your downsizing. Which, honestly, could make it a little difficult to grow some of the fruits and herbs you mentioned. Especially in an indoor situation, even a terrarium. I do not have terrarium experience, so that will be a learning experience for both of us. I have not grown blueberries, but I do eat wild grown from main. I do know blueberries do need full sun. The less sun, the less production. I did find a website that has lots of info about growing blueberries organically. So, check this out : http://www.onthegreenfarms.com/fruit-vegetable/how-to-grow-organic-blueberries/ I hope this helps. I know peppers and tomatoes can be grown indoors, but it needs lots of lights or full sun. You wouldn't want to grow tomatoes in a terrarium because it would be too wet of situation causing mold/bacteria and I would be guessing, but peppers would be the same situation. There are some ornamental peppers that can be grown indoors, but do you want to eat your peppers? If so, it needs sun but in the heat of the day like I have here in Texas, it would be better to partially shade the pepper in the afternoon. I see you are in Texas, what part? By Dallas, Ft Worth, Houston, Austin, East or West Texas area? Well, I've got to go for now. But, I'll chat later. Look forward to your response.

Hi Insomnikat, I've never done a terrarium so cant give advice on that. I have however grown tomatoes in hanging pots. Nothing like fresh cherry tomatoes at christmas dinner. I've also grown hot peppers in pots.

Hi!

It's so nice that having a smaller space will not stop you from gardening. I am guessing that you really love it. For beginners, I suggest you check out hobstr.com for terrarium starter kits. As of the moment, they are offering two terrarium starter kits there. I hope I was able to help. :D
