What You Need:
- Container. (Those inexpensive fish bowls work well and are available at craft stores. If you have pets who will eat the plants, look for a container with a lid, such as the one I used below.)
- 4-5 small succulents, or more if you have a large container
- Miracle-Gro Cactus Potting Soil
- Decorative rocks
Fill the container 1/3 full with the Miracle-Gro. Remove the succulents from their pots and place them inside the bowl. Use the trowel to pat soil around the base of the plants until they are sturdy and won't fall over. After all of the plants are secure, top off the soil and continue to pat down with the trowel. Pour water in until the soil is damp, and then sprinkle decorative rocks around the plants. Water the terrarium whenever the soil is dry to the touch. Keep the terrarium in an area with partial shade. Ours is sitting on our coffee table and gets ample light in the mornings.
