Making A Terrarium is Real Easy!
Simply follow the steps below and you can make your own terrarium in a breeze.
Step 1: Get the following materials ready
- 2 -3 Varieties of Succulents
- A Clear Glass Bowl
- Potting Soil
- Pebbles for Drainage
- Pebbles for Decoration
- Gloves (optional)
- Small Teaspoon
Step 2: Using a table spoon, fill the bottom of clear glass bowl with pebbles. The purpose of using pebbles as the bottom layer is to aid water drainage.
Step 3: With a pair of glove (optional, if you do not like hands with soil) remove the mini plants from their original pots. Be careful not to hurt their delicate roots during this process.
Step 4: Arrange them in the glass bowl in your desired arrangement.
Step 5: Using small teaspoon, fill up the gaps with potting soil. To have a nice landscaping effect, layer more soil at the back (to make a higher hill at the back) and layer less soil in the front. Your terrarium will have a nice sloping effect from its side view.
Step 6: When you are satisfy with the overall layout, next is to layer pebbles on the surface of the soil. Slightly bigger stone which is of contrasting color against your pebbles can also be added to enhance the overall aesthetical look, however, use them sparingly
Lastly, your end product is gonna be a lovely succulent terrarium which you will definitely be so proud of :)
