I am one of those not-so-good-at-watering-plants kind of girls, but I love plants at the same time. Makes no sense, right? Thankfully, terrariums allow you to add the airy, natural feel of plants to any room without the fuss of caring for them. Today my guest blogger, Rebecca D. Dillon of Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen, is going to show how easy it is to make a terrarium of your own!
A glass container with a lid
Damp potting soil
Small stones or pebbles
Moss and other small plants such as ferns
Tiny decorative items you wish to include
To create your terrarium start with a clean, dry glass container. Layer your stones along the bottom of the jar so they are about 1 inch thick. Follow with a thin layer of charcoal, then add a layer of potting soil over the charcoal. The soil should take reach about 1/4 the height of the jar. Plant the moss and other plants in the soil. You may need to use chop sticks to help you arrange the plants. Finally, add any decorations you’d like to the terrarium to personalize it and then close the lid. Occasionally spritz your terrarium with water to keep the soil moist to the touch. Take care not to over water. Enjoy your new creation!
