I have a bunch of small plants hanging around the house and I'm getting tired of trying to find just the right place for them. This is the solution a came up with-a terrarium. I've never had one before but felt that I was up to the challenge. After a little reading and preparing, I ordered this from Amazon. Apparently there is a particular way to set these contained gardens up.
- First layer should be pebbles or sand combined with charcoal (got mine in the pet department of Walmart-it's used in fish tanks)
- Second layer is soil. You can get creative here and add hills, valleys and some rocks.
- Add your plants. I put in miniature African violets, cactus and another plant (have no idea what it is).
- cover with some live moss
Terrariums are low maintenance only needing a spritz of water ever so often. They make great focal points in a room, especially if you love plants.
