Terrarium Tutorial

This week, we're working with a completely blank canvas. You can create and customize your terrarium project to fit your space and style. Have fun with it! While glass is the traditional "house" for terrariums, you can build from small to very large, using houseplants or succulents, adding accents or colors that match your décor.

So browse the list and have your supplies ready to plant along with us.
  • A glass vessel of your choice; we have an eclectic mix, or use a treasure from home
  • Sand or Small Pebbles
  • Horticultural Charcoal
  • Sphagnum Moss
  • Potting Soil
  • 2” or 4” Houseplants or Succulents of Varying Height, Color and Texture. (Note: You can plant succulents if your terrarium does not have a lid.)
Optional:
  • Decorative Rock, Glass, Shells, Decorative Moss, Fairy Garden Pieces, Driftwood...you get the idea.
