HOW TO MAKE A TERRARIUM
Bring the outside in with this gorgeous geometric terrarium. Sure to brighten up your living space and improve the air quality in your home, it’s a win-win
You can easily create your own miniature landscape in a glass enclosure like this candle holder – all you need are fuss-free plants such as mosses, cacti and succulents, or add some colour with an orchid, as seen here. Cover the bottom of the vessel with gravel – this allows the roots to breathe and prevents them from drowning. Then position your plants and add suitable compost around them to the level it was in the pot. Cover the soil with pebbles or shells and dress with some live moss – not only will this cover the soil, making it look more attractive, it will also absorb odours and excess water. Place out of direct sunlight and water sparingly. Voilà!
