Indoor Eden: Create a Terrarium with this Simple Recipe

Dive into the delightful world of terrariums with our February container garden recipe! A terrarium is a miniature landscape, a self-contained environment where plants thrive under glass. It’s like having a tiny forest or garden on your desk, bringing a slice of the outdoors inside. Fun fact: The first terrarium was created by botanist Nathaniel Bagshaw Ward by accident in 1842, and it’s been a charming way to connect with nature indoors ever since. Now, let’s build our terrarium layer by layer:

  1. Activated Charcoal: Begin with a base layer of charcoal to aid in drainage and prevent mildew and fungus growth.
  2. Drainage Rock: Add a layer of rocks or gravel to simulate the drainage you would find in natural soil, which is crucial for keeping roots healthy in a container without drainage holes.
  3. Potting Soil: Follow with slightly damp, fertilizer-free potting soil to cover plant roots while allowing room for growth.
  4. Top Dressing: A final touch of smaller gravel adds beauty and assists with moisture management. Embellish with decorative elements like tiny figurines or shells for personal flair.
  5. Itty Bitty Plants: Select from our range of “Itty Bitty” plants suitable for terrarium life; they’re small in stature but big on charm.

Create your own terrarium and bring the serene essence of a garden into your home.
