Making a glass jar terrarium is a great opportunity to go outside for a walk with your buddy and have fun while you collect all the rocks, soil, pebbles and moss.
- Glass jar of any kind (mason jar, pickle jar, etc)
- Small plant (like a succulent but any plant can work)
- Pebbles, rocks, sand and moss (go for a walk with your buddy and find them in the park on the backyard)
After you collect all the items, follow these easy steps:
Start adding your layers and work up from large to small. Start with bigger rocks and a layer of moss for drainage and color.
Work up to your soil layer. All the pebble and moss layers create drainage since your glass jar doesn’t have any holes in the bottom, this will help prevent over-watering the plant. Add 1-2 inches of soil.
Dig a little hole in the soil, loosen the roots and add your plant. Finish with a final layer of moss. Water the moss and not the plant.
