— MAKING THE TERRARIUM —
This is how I make my terrariums, and I've made lots; I usually give them as gifts for people. This is the easy version of instructions:
(1) You first start with getting a glass container like a round globe, a cylinder, or something fancy like a Wardian Case.
2) Find plants! You can't make terrariums without plants. I recommend Hirt's Garden's Terrarium & Fairy Garden Plants - 5 Plants in 2" pots, or 3 Plants in 2" pots). You get a wide assortment of plants, they are cute and tiny, and they will take time to grow so you will enjoy your terrarium longer without it outgrowing too quickly. I usually put three plants in a medium container, depends on what I'm making.
3) Using a sharpie, mark lines on the glass as to how much to fill of each material [see photo, pending]. This will make it a lot easier to visually see how much to fill. When filled with everything, it should never go past 1/3 to 1/2 full; you want room for your plant(s) to fill the rest of the space, and proportionally it is more aesthetically pleasing (I've artfully, and scientifically, come to these ratios).
4) Fill first with gravel/rocks. Gravel is for decorative purposes, and to give some breathing room for roots in case you water too much.
5) Fill with a layer of moss. The moss will act as a wick between the gravel and soil, and also a barrier against the charcoal; You don't want charcoal mixing with the gravel, it looks terrible.
6) Fill with a thin layer of charcoal. Charcoal helps for a while in filtering any impurities in the water.
7) Fill the rest with soil, up to the 1/3 to 1/2 point of the container.
8) At this point you will have to make holes in the soil and plant your pots in. I recommend a short plant in the front, medium one right behind, and a tall one next to it.
— SUN —
Place on a windowsill in bright, indirect light like in front of a frosted bathroom window. Direct sun (south-facing) could burn the leaves and cause it to turn brown in a day. Rotate 30 degrees-ish once a week for even sun coverage.
— WATERING —
Water up to the sphagnum moss layer. The soil and roots will soak up the water. Depending on the plants you put in, they will require different water requirements; make sure you research this. It’s better to have less water than more; you don't want to drown your plants.
— MAINTENANCE —
Make sure there is a flow of air throughout the room. Leaving a terrarium enclosed *will* eventually cause it to grow mold (unless you assembled it in a completely sterile lab). Trim any brown/dead leaves as soon as you can, and as close to the base of the plant. You can trim plants if they start to grow too big and they will grow back. Some plants are able to be propagated through stem cuttings if you wish to plant them in a separate pot.
This may all sound difficult, but once you make one, you may enjoy it too much and make more. I usually make three terrariums at a time, or spend an entire day making them to make the whole process worthwhile, because it is a process.
This kit provides the foundation of what you need to create a terrarium. You are free to add to the top soil with moss, or decorative mini figurines to enhance your terrarium. Recommended.
