Lately, I had plenty of time to do something pretty, so I decided to do a terrarium. Terrarium is a sealed or opened glass container with plants inside. I got the idea from Pinterest, namely from here and was very happy to try it. Yesterday I went to the Flohmarkt, where I bought glass containers (I got one for 1,50 euro and bought 3 :)) and various succulents. Today, I went to the Bauhaus, a big market for house and garden supplies, and bought succulent soil and little rocks. You may also need moss, unfortunately I couldn’t find it so I went without it.
Having all these, it remains to put them together. It is so easy, you really can do it under 1 hour.
- Put some rocks at the bottom.
- You may want to add some activated charcoal to prevent mold from forming in between the rocks. (I added a small cartoon, so that the soil doesn’t drip through the rocks)
- Add the succulent soil.
- Add the succulents. You can combine them as you like, you can add cactuses. This is the beauty of a terrarium, you can be as creative as you want.
- On the top you can add moss or very small rocks. They offer a nice view to the terrarium.
Here are some pictures of what I got.
