Terrarium 101

My newest fascination... terrariums!
I just made this one and I can't get enough of it.

You don't have to be particular about what goes into your terrarium. In my opinion, it's more fun to try things out... whatever works, works and whatever doesn't, doesn't. It doesn't have to be difficult.

What you will need:

-a glass bowl or vase with a fairly large opening
-small rocks
-activated charcoal
-potting soil
-small ferns (or any indoor plants)
-preserved moss
-decorative elements

Create your terrarium by adding the elements in that order. You can also use succulents. If you do, instead of the preserved moss, use sand to give it a deserty look.

Here are some inspiring terrarium ideas...
