You might recall (emphasis on the might) a post I did when I first started the blog about terrariums and a terrarium I had just created. Well... that poor guy didn't last long. I'm learning that I don't have much of a green thumb, but I refuse to give up! This weekend I gave my old terrarium a makeover and decided to try my hand at succulents. Now, when I say makeover, I mean... I dumped the old one and made a new one with nothing that is actually living (haha). I still think it looks pretty cute.
For this one, I used a thin layer of rocks, charcoal, potting soil, and preserved moss. That's right, preserved... meaning, I can't kill it!
Next up... my succulent terrariums!
I spent some time on Saturday at a local nursery picking out some small succulents. I usually spend more time than I need there because it's so nice to just walk around and take it all in.
I really like how these turned out. Just like my first terrarium, I began with a layer of rocks and then added a thin layer of charcoal. The difference between the two is the soil. For the succulents, I mixed equal parts potting soil and coarse sand. I planted the succulents and layered the top with rocks.
I sure hope these last!
