Making A Terrarium: 4 DIY Terrarium Ideas

Terrariums are a fun DIY gardening project. Here you’ll learn how to make a terrarium in four ways including container choice, plant choice, steps, care, and things good to know.

Plants that require moderate to high humidity do best, especially in closed terrariums. I wouldn’t use succulents because they don’t like to stay moist nor do they need the humidity.

Tools for planting are helpful, we used chopsticks, plant stake, and mini trowel. For the soil we used 2/3 potting soil, 1/3 coco coir, coco chips, and rock or pebble for drainage.

I water terrariums around the edges and a bit in the middle. I like this bottle for watering or a small can with a long neck to control the amount of water going in.

After completing place your terrarium in a spot where it doesn’t receive direct sun. The glass heats up fast and your little plants will burn.
