Make your own mini Terrarium

Making a Terrarium. As winter continues to hang on up here, we will make an indoor garden this month. A terriarium is fun to make and easy to maintain. You might even want to make yours into a "fairy garden" by adding a few small doll accessories.

You will need:

  • a large jar, fish bowl, aquarium, other clear container
  • Charcoal
  • Potting Soil
  • sand or gravel for drainage
  • several small houseplants
  • long dowel or other long handled planting tools
  • accessories
Wash out container well with soap and water. line bottom up container with sand or gravel about 1/2-1 inches deep.

Sprinkle a generous amount of crushed charcoal over the sand. Add damp potting soil to several inches deep.

Plant the plants in the terrarium using dowel or other tools as necessary.

Water carefully so that plants get a good drink, but will not be sitting in water. You will know when to water again by touching the soil. If it is dry, water it. If it feels damp, do not. If you cover the terrarium, it will not require frequent watering.

You may wish to use some gravel to make paths among the plants and place any accessories to decorate your garden.
