Terrific Terrariums

Girl _w -Terrarium

 

Bring nature indoors and create your own tiny, tropical ecosystem

Materials

wide, clear, lidded container (check local hobby store)

pebbles

activated carbon (sold at pet stores)

soil

stones, moss, and small plants

spray mister

decorations (optional)

 

 

Instructions

  1. Cover the bottom of your container with an inch of pebbles.
  2. Add a layer of activated carbon to curb any earthy odors, then top it with 3 inches of soil.
  3. Arrange the stones, moss, and plants to make a garden.
  4. Mist the terrarium with water until the soil is moist but not wet. Add
    decorations, if you like, then close the lid. If the container becomes cloudy, remove the top to let excess moisture evaporate. Mist the terrarium lightly if the soil starts to dry out.

 Tips:

Use tiny ivies, palms, pilea, and African violets from a local garden centre
