how to: build a terrarium

happy earth day!

today, we're making terrariums!

what you'll need
container of some sort
small potting pebbles
a variety of succulents, cactus, etc.


1. clean out container and prep it for potting

2. fill bottom of vessel with one layer of small rocks to help with drainage
(this step is optional, but if you're like me and overwater your plants - i would highly suggest it!)

3. add layer of succulent/cactus potting soil
(you don't need to over do it here - you can always add more later)

4. take plants, pulling off any excess soil from their original container
and dig them into the soil. fill your little pot to your liking.

5. place somewhere with bright light and water once per week.
