Easy As! Create a Succulent Terrarium

Creating your very own stylish terrarium is much easier and cheaper then you might think. So add a little living colour to your home decor or give a handmade gift with a difference!

The Ideal plants to use for terrariums are small succulents and indoor foliage plants. Succulents are heartier than most foliage indoor plants & require less watering.

 

How to Pot a Terrarium

1. Cover bottom of bowl with gravel (approx. depth of 4cm).

2. Cover gravel with Searles Terrarium & Fern Potting Mix to a depth of approximately 10-15cm (dependent on size of bowl).

3. ‘Tease’ root system of plant & remove some of the bottom mass of the root system.
 
4. Pop plants into the soil.

6. Using a spray bottle, spray the bowl to clean (outside & inside) & wipe dry.
