  • Sand, clay balls, gravel pegs for drainage
  • Foam layer
  • Pieces of activated carbon

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!
