My Succulent Terrarium

Standard

This weekend I decided to make a terrarium. I first sent a text message over to my dear friend Molly. She runs her own gardening business and I thought she would be a good place to start with advice. A terrarium is a container which is designed to hold small plants and animals in controlled conditions. I decided to make an open terrarium since I was using succulent plants.

Here is what you need:
A large deep glass container
Pebbles/rocks
Cactus/succulent soil
3-4 succulent plants

Let’s Make it:
Line the bottom of the glass container with rocks /pebbles
Add a thin layer of dirt
Gently place the plants on top of the dirt
Add additional dirt to even out the layer between the plants
Succulents do well when you water them and let sit for 2 to 3 weeks
Make sure they get plenty of sun
