Get your hands Dirty: Terrarium

succulent terrarium

This weekend, I am planning on getting my hands a little dirty and doing some planting and gardening. On my to do list is finally making a succulent terrarium for the house. I'm trying to spruce up my green thumb and I'm thinking this low maintenance project will be the right start. I've scoured the Internet researching instruction, care tips, and creative ideas for a terrarium. Succulents have a such a special place in my heart and they always look so cute and lovely so I have decided to use succulents over other plants such as tillandsia (air plants). You can choose to do any kind of terrarium and from all the research I've done, it seems like the same type of materials are needed. Check them out below
what you need terrarium
Make the Terrarium your own by choosing a unique container. There are tons of options. I personally love cloches and West elm's wide selection of terrarium glassware.

As for the "How To", here is the diy that I am following from Birdhouse Diy + Design. I chose one that was simple and straightforward. Be sure to read the care and watering instructions. Very helpful! Feel free to share ones that have been successful for you.

Good luck! and Happy Planting!

  1. i can't wait to see this! I've been wanting to do a terranium, too, b/c let's face it, I don't have the patience to take care of anything requiring more attention. Can't wait to see how it turns out!

  2. Hey, it's Alice :)

    I bought one from a local maker but that definitely peaked my interest in making my own! Roe, if you go to a landscaping/gardening place, they should be able to help you pick plants that are sturdy and don't require much attention. I am definitely a plant killer, but my terrarium only requires watering every 2 weeks or so. If anything, something I need to do is work on trimming it since one branch has grown a bunch!

  3. HI guys! hopefully it will turn out great this weekend. I will let you know. Alice how big is the terrarium you have?
