i think greenery is the best decor any room can have. i made this terrarium because i had an empty pail sitting in my window sill, and happened to pass a store with small plants outside for only a couple dollars each. there isn't really a whole lot of explaining necessary, but in any case, here is what you need:
- a pail/pot/box/something to hold the plants
- some cool small plants
- soil (usually what comes with the plant is enough)
- pretty rocks
- gloves if you're working with cacti!! (it took me 3 hours and A LOT of pain to get little cacti hairs out of my fingers)
fill the pail with soil, and leave some space before reaching the top. place your plants in with enough space between that they can grow without interfering with one another. cover roots with more soil. add rocks at the top to look pretty. water as much as needed.
i'll admit that i'm not one with a green thumb, and don't know a whole lot about plants. i was a little worried about planting a cactus with other plants, but thus far it has been working just fine! i usually just water the cacti side of the terrarium less often :) my baby plants are growing so quickly & beautifully!!
