Terrarium how to ala Chicajones

I bought this at an antique shop not knowing what I would put in it and really not what to do with it.

I’ve since found out that it is a Terrarium.

Here is what I did with it.

This is what you will need;

  • I bought succulent and cacti soil
  • Sea glass by the pound or gravel
  • coffee filter
  • a couple of spoons
  • water spray bottle
  • a toy or cute thingy

I started by washing down the terrarium (glass bird house) then drying very well. If you do this it will be easier after it’s full.

Set a layer of sea glass (gravel).

Put coffee filter above sea glass.

Add dirt carefully with the spoon. I found out that the slower you go the better.

Put plants in carefully through hole. Press down roots with a chopstick or spoon. and add more dirt.

Once the plants are set spray with water bottle or just add water slowly until you see that it has seeped through to the bottom layer of sea glass or gravel.

Put in a sunny but not direct sun place and enjoy!
