Oh great, I just found another obsession – Plant terrariums! After finding some excellent tutorials online, I will link them later in the post, I decided to make my own.
I used leca clay balls, stones (just got some outside and cleaned them) and regular potting soil. I also used this glass vase from IKEA and a small plastic figurine.
First layer, leca balls for drainage. Everyone seems to be using some type of coal mixture in the bottom of their terrariums, but I have no idea what that is or where to find it, so this will do for now.
Second layer, some stones.
Third layer, planting soil.
I had to try and spread out my plant’s roots for it to fit in the soil.
For decoration I put some of the stones on top of the soil around the plant.
I think I would like something more in this terrarium, but for now this little bigfoot/ape-monster will have to do. :D
Here are some cooler terrariums and awesome tutorials on how to make your own little plant dioramas.
