My Son and I wanted to make a special gift for Father’s Day and we experimented to create a mini garden and in today’s post, I’m sharing with you ‘How to make a Succulent Terrarium garden’.
What you need:
- Clear glass container.
- Rocks (tiny ones, depending on the size of container)
- Charcoal to filter the water and help prevent growth of fungi
- Potting Soil
- Succulent (that aren’t going to grow too big for the container)
- Sand or Moss
- Fun decor
Start with a layer of rocks at the bottom of your container. These will help the soil drainage, so the roots of your plants won’t get water-logged.
Add a layer of charcoal
Now layer the container with potting soil and plant the succulents. Arrange them to look nice. Pat down the soil so they don’t get uprooted easily.
Add a layer of fine sand or moss and embellish with decorative pebbles, shells, or fun decor to make your terrarium look like a little garden world.
We used pebbles and buttons to make it a Fairy Garden!
Water the plants just adequately and place your terrarium garden in indirect light.
This Father’s Day, make your Dad a terrarium garden that he can use as a table centerpiece or simply to brighten up his house or office.
