Terrariums Step by Step

Start with an attractive glass container.

Pick plants that like high humidity.

Pour charcoal into the bottom of your container.

Charcoal acts as a filter,

and keeps your terrarium from smelling "boggy."

Add potting mix.

Plant your selected plants into the mix.

Firm them in.

Victoria likes to use a group of three different plants.

Use moss to cover the exposed mix.

The moss makes the terrarium polished.

Lush and lovely.

Your terrarium will need very little maintenance.

When the very top of the soil mix starts to look dry, a few squirts from a spay bottle should keep your terrarium moist.
