Step 2 - Building Your Terrarium

  • Put a layer of 1" - 2″ of gravel to create a drainage system for your terrarium. This will ensure that your plants live longer.

  • Put a layer of 2" - 4″ of succulent potting soil to create a base for planting.

  • Take your selected succulents out of their containers, loosening the surrounding soil from the pot.
  • Remove any dead/brown leaves before planting.
  • Burrow a small divot in base layer to place in your succulent, compacting with dirt to secure it into place.
  • You may split apart succulents with multiple stems that are not connected by one root.

  • When planting is complete, even out the top layer of soil so it is all the same and all plants are secure.

  • Add in your top dressings such as mood moss, pebbles, stones, sand or crushed glass.
  • Mix different textures and colors to give it your own unique look.

*Note: Place your terrarium in a spot that will get bright indirect light or sunlight. Water using a spray bottle with filtered water once every week/week and a half.
