DIY Succulent Terrariums

Making cute lil’ terrariums is a great way to add a splash of color to your home or office.

Here’s how…


Hey, Heather Angel

a few small jars or glass bowls like the ones pictured above
activated carbon — available at any pet store in the fish tank area
small pebbles or stones — also available in the fish tank supplies
small/tiny succulent plants
bag of spanish moss (optional)
all-purpose potting soil

Gently remove succulents from their container by squeezing the plastic pot a few times to loosen the soil/roots. Carefully separate the plants — usually there are 3-4 plants per pot.
In the jars/bowls, layer your supplies like so: (amount of each depends on the size of your jar, so do your best to wing it) 1/2 inch pebbles; 2 cm charcoal/carbon; 2-3 inches soil with small holes dug in for plant roots to go and a tiny bit of water to slightly dampen the soil; 2-3 plants; top with moss.

Easy peasy, huh? :)
