Jul 11, 2012 No Comments by

For even the most botanically inept, terrariums are super easy to make and incredibly low-maintenance. They also make pretty much the best gifts or party favors ever.

The Basics:

Step 1. Choose an open or closed glass container of some sort.
Step 2. Cover the bottom with an inch-thick layer of pebbles or rocks to create a false drainage system for the plant roots.
Step 3. Add a thin layer of activated charcoal keeps the water fresh, and prevent mold and bacteria from building up.
Step 4. Add a layer of potting soil. They also make a special mix if you choose to use cacti and succulents instead of moss and ferns.
Step 5. Place plants in the terrarium, starting with the largest plant first.
