Crate & Barrel Inspiration picture
I searched the Internet for the best way to make a terrarium -- the combination of soil, pebbles, moss, charcoal, etc -- and found that there wasn't any 'right' way. At least, there wasn't any 'one' way. So, as is the way I usually roll, I am playing around here and time will tell if I made these correctly and they live to see another day.
In the end I made 3 terrariums: two with succulents and 1 non-succulent.
For the succulents, I planted:
- A layer of small pebbles
- A combo layer of potting soil and succulent soil into which I planted my succulents
- A top dressing of some stones and moss (or just moss)
For the non succulent, I planted:
- A layer of small stones
- A layer of potting soil in which I planted my plant
- A too dressing of moss to retain moisture
