    What you will need to make a terrarium:



    • Gravel- This is your drainage layer.
    • Plastic sheet or bag and pin to make holes with. This sheet will act as a base layer. You can use mesh if you have any- easier and better.
    • Soil- This is your substrate.
    • Bark- Helps with drainage, mix pieces into your soil.
    • Moss & Fern.
    • Stones- This is your decorative landscaping.
    • Figurines- Optional, decorative pieces.
    • Mason Jar- Closed with a Lid.
    • Water- mist your terrarium.

    This looks pretty neat! You can really go to town with ideas for this. I'll see if my kids are interested. If not, I'll make one myself. lol

    Wow, It's really beautiful.
    Just wanted to ask, you've said that this composition don't require watering. Won't it get dry with time?
    Never give up. Better finished than perfect.

    thank you! no it shouldn't. If you mist it at the beginning, a closed terrarium shouldn't need watering, as it creates it's own eco-system. You just need to pick the right plants for a closed terrarium that suit that environment and thrive. Hence the fern and moss

    Thanks for your answer!
    Now I'm certainly going to make one. Are you collecting plants from wild?

    yes! I hardly ever pay for my plants I go to a park and fetch moss and a fern plant or two
    I've actually not opened this terrarium since I made it, and it is thriving well baby ferns are growing and new moss too
