You can create an amazing terrarium at your home, in just five easy steps. All you need to do is to achieve in advance all the items you need.

For your terrarium you will need:

  • a terrarium
  • small rocks
  • potting soil for succulents
  • small plants

Here is what you need to do to create the terrarium

Step 1: At first you have to make sure your terrarium is perfectly clean and dry.

Step 2: Add a 1,5 inch layer of small rocks at the bottom of the terrarium. Beside the fact that it looks great, the rocks will collect any water in excess and prevent the plants from draining.

Step 3: The next step is to add the soil. The soil layer has to be deep enough so the roots of the plants could develop. So, make sure the potting soil layer has at least 2 to 3 inches.

Step 4: Remove the plants from the soil and carefully clean their roots.

Step 5: Finally, plant the plants into the soil from the terrarium, then pat the soil down firmly to ensure the plant stays in place. Continue with all the plants in the same way.
