How to Plant a Terrarium
Follow these simple tips from Teleflora's Maire Ackerman to create a one-of-a-kind terrarium.
Here are some easy instructions on how to make your own DIY terrarium. Gather a variety of small plants including ivy and fern. You'll also need gravel, charcoal and soil to fill a container. Next, select your vessel. Clear glass with an opening near the top is ideal. Spread a 3/4 inch layer of gravel followed by a thin layer of charcoal. Then add 3 to 4 inches of soil or whatever your container will accommodate. Begin planting from back to front to create an attractive arrangement. Be sure not to overcrowd and you can finish off the look by adding a layer of moss over the soil. Add additional embellishments such as rocks or coral. Place the terrarium in direct light. When the soil feels dry to the touch, water with 1 or 2 ice cubes.
