Trendy and easy to make, the terrarium plant is a very original idea for decorating your space
In general, it is a place where live certain animal or vegetable species. Other words - a miniature ecosystem, a small indoor garden, made of glass or plastic, the equivalent of an aquarium, but without water. The earth, sand and gravel replace the water.
And also, you can realize a closed terrarium. For plants, it is better to choose plants that are small.

How to make a plant terrarium
- For a container, it must first be transparent - glass or plastic, for example, but has an opening large enough to place-y small figurines. You can use a fishbowl, lantern bells, vases, tureens, jars, an electric bulb, a glass teapot etc.
- Potting soil - opt for the light and drained potting soil
- Sand, clay balls, gravel pegs for drainage
- Foam layer
- Pieces of activated carbon
- Small plants - choose plants that prefer light and moisture
And of course, do not forget to use gloves when you add activated charcoal.
First, wash the container of your terrarium well with a soap, to prevent the growth of bacteria.

How to maintain the terrarium plant
The light exposure must be adapted to the needs of the plants. In case your plant terrarium is open, you have to water them regularly - twice a week. But if the terrarium is airtight, you must give it fresh air from time to time. Remove the dead leaves too, clean the stones and watch for pests.
So, you know how to make your own terrarium plant. Good luck!
