Make your own Terrarium at home...

When selecting plants for your DIY terrarium, please keep in mind:
Time to build your own:
Step 1 - Grab a handful of pebbles and cover the bottom layer until it's at a 1½ inch-thick. The pebbles are important for water drainage.
Step 2 - Add a layer of Thrive Cacti & Succulent Potting Mix. You should add enough soil so that it’s deep enough for your plants to root. We recommend a 2 ½ inch layer of soil.
Safety tip: Use gloves when handling cactus or any other prickly plant.
You can also add some fairy garden ornaments into your terrarium to make it come to life.
Once your terrarium is complete, you’ll need to look after it. Sunlight and water are two essential items for the success of your terrarium.
