A couple of months ago I had posted about terrariums in my Cabin Fever post. Well it took me this long to finally get the supplies I needed to make my very own terrariums.
By using these apothecary jars I think I've finally thwarted my cats' attempts at destroying any and all plants.
I’m going to walk you through the steps I took in making my terrariums, that way you can make your very own if you wish.
You'll need: charcoal, potting soil (I used a cactus mix for better drainage), rocks, moss, a container, and plants
I used stones, dried reindeer moss, and fake moss rocks I found at the dollar store.
After washing your container and rocks, place rocks in container. You'll want the layer of rocks to be a couple of inches. The rocks are for drainage, so use as much as you need to prevent root rot.
Now, sprinkle some charcoal over the rocks.
Then add soil. Use enough soil for your plant's roots.
Add your plants.
Finally, add any decorations you want, such as moss. Then water thoroughly.
And you're all done!
The other terrarium I made. (I'm worried I put too many plants in this one)
I am by no means a plant expert. I don’t even have a green thumb, it’s more like a black thumb. I do, however, love plants and wanted to attempt growing some terrariums. There’s a lot of informative resources out there that can help you with making your own terrarium.
