What You'll Need:

Terrarium Workshop
  • A clear glass container with a wide opening. Depending on your preferences, the jars can be egg-shaped, round, oval, or polygonal. We recommend using a fishbowl or an old mason jar.
  • Some gravel, small rocks, or pebbles for drainage.
  • Some activated charcoal to keep your terrarium's environment clean and free of bacteria.
  • A layer of moss. This will act as a filter to prevent dirt and bacteria from entering the terrarium.
  • A handful of small plants. We recommend using succulents or cacti because they are easy to care for and don't require much water.
  • Humus, some potting soil.
  • A spray bottle filled with water.
  • Some accessories of your preferences

Steps To Create Your Own Terrarium:

Step 1: Start by cleaning your glass container with a mild soap and water solution. Rinse it well and allow it to air dry completely.

Step 2: Next, add a layer of gravel, small rocks, or pebbles to the bottom of the container to prevent waterlogging of the plants because glass containers are different from plant pots which have a drainage hole. You can make the gravel layer thick or thin based on the container's diameter.

Step 3: Put a thin layer of activated charcoal over the rocks. This will help purify water, reducing the spread of bacteria and fungi in the soil as well as rotten plants.

Step 4: Add a layer of moss over the charcoal. This will act as a filter to prevent dirt and bacteria from entering the terrarium.

Step 5: Put on top a layer of humus to keep the soil moist, providing more nutrients for the plants and allowing water to penetrate more quickly.

Step 6: Spread a layer of porous soil with high humus on top. You can adjust the thickness of the layer depending on the size of the container.

Step 7: Add a handful of small plants to the terrarium. We recommend using succulents or cacti because they are easy to care for and don't require much water. For closed containers, we should only plant some types of moss and ferns because sealed containers are usually watered once a month which is not favorable for certain types of plants.

Step 8: Water the plants with a spray bottle filled with water. Be sure to not overwater the plants, as this can cause them to rot.

Step 9: Place the terrarium in a bright, sunny location.

Step 10: Enjoy your new terrarium! Remember to mist the plants with water every week or so to keep them healthy and happy.
