Terrariums have gained immense popularity in recent years, and it’s not hard to see why. They offer a unique way to bring the beauty of the natural world into your home, all while adding a touch of charm and creativity to your space. Plus, they are relatively easy to make and require minimal maintenance, making them a perfect craft for busy adults.
To begin your terrarium adventure, gather the necessary supplies. You will need a glass container, such as a jar or a fish tank, which will serve as the base for your terrarium. Additionally, you’ll need some small pebbles or rocks for drainage, activated charcoal to keep the soil fresh, potting soil, and of course, the star of the show – plants!

When selecting plants for your terrarium, opt for those that thrive in a humid environment and require low to moderate light. Some popular choices include ferns, mosses, succulents, and air plants. Not only do these plants add a touch of greenery, but they also create a sense of tranquility and relaxation when incorporated into your living space.
Once you have gathered your supplies, it’s time to get your hands dirty! Start by adding a layer of pebbles or rocks at the bottom of your container. This will help with drainage and prevent the roots from sitting in water. Next, sprinkle a thin layer of activated charcoal on top of the rocks. The charcoal will act as a filter, removing any impurities and keeping the soil fresh.

Now comes the fun part – adding the soil! Carefully pour the potting soil into your container, making sure to leave enough space for your plants. Gently pat down the soil to create a stable base for your greenery. Once the soil is in place, it’s time to plant your chosen plants. Get creative with the arrangement, combining different textures and heights to create a visually appealing composition.
After planting your terrarium, give it a gentle watering using a spray bottle. Be mindful not to overwater, as terrariums are a closed environment and excessive moisture can lead to rotting. Finally, place your terrarium in a spot that receives indirect sunlight, as direct sunlight can cause the glass to heat up and potentially harm your plants.

So, this April, why not channel your inner creativity and give DIY terrariums a go? Whether you’re a seasoned gardener or a complete novice, these miniature gardens are sure to bring joy and a sense of accomplishment. With a little bit of imagination and a few simple materials, you can create a tiny oasis that will brighten up your living space and remind you of the beauty of spring all year round.
