This weekend I made my own terrarium, and I have to admit I think it turned out fantastic! Now let’s hope it doesn’t die on me.
Making your own terrarium is simple and quick and zero to none skill set required.

Items you will require:
-A vase
-Pebbles
-Moss
-Air plants

I purchased my vase at the dollar store a couple years back, I then added a cup and a half of small black pebbles. I then added the moss and finally the air plants on top. Voila your terrarium is created. The most time consuming thing about this project is the arranging of the moss and air plants, so depending on your vase you may need to use some long tweezers.

Air plants are great because they don’t require soil in order to grow. They can be placed on pebbles, rocks, sand or moss. Air plants will latch on with the help of light and moisture and eventually can multiply.

So remember to mist your terrarium every so often. Keep out of direct sunlight but place in a sunny room.

These plants will also survive with direct fluorescent light exposure – so all of you people working in offices , this plant is going to be easy to maintain.

I look forward to hearing how your terrarium turns out!
