No green thumb? No worries, one isn’t required for these simple, chic miniature terrariums!
GATHER: round up SUCCULENTS, CONTAINERS and RIVER ROCKS.
I sourced my succulents and glass containers from a local flower warehouse. The large glass teardrops were purposed to be hanging candleholders but the shape and versatility made them the perfect terrarium containers!
Line: cover The bottom of the container with river rocks.
Layering the river rocks at the bottom of the containers helps with drainage. The beauty of succulents is that they’re quite resilient plants. Depending on the type of succulent, they can be watered as little as once a week. Place a small amount of soil atop of the rocks before adding the plants.
pot: squeeze the container to release the succulents.
Separate the succulents and place them into the container you bought. Use a spoon to scoop additional soil around the plants.
BRUSH: Use a paint brush to clear dirt off of succulents.
So what are you waiting for? Gather your supplies and you’re minutes away from your very own visually-stunning succulent terrariums!
