How to Make a Succulent Terrarium

Veronica Brundle - Apr 3 2023, 7:09:28 PM

Creating and growing a succulent can transform your desk from a boring paper-filled desert into a green oasis....well probably not exactly but it can reduce stress and create a calming environment.  Here is a step by step instruction on how to create a succulent:

1. Container

The first thing you will need is an open container.  A closed terrarium is a big no-no with high mosture and humid environments.  We recommend a glass container with a sloped curve

2. Drainage Layer

Add a layer of small river rocks or gravel at the bottom of the terrarium.  This will create a reserviour where excess water can draing preventing any overaturation and protecting the plants roots. 

3. Add Potting Soil on top of the Drainage Layer

Before you place your succulent in the pot you've chosen, fill it almost (but not quite) to the top with potting soil. Leave a little bit of room at the top, so the roots will have a comfortable fit, and you'll be able to add more soil later on.

4. Plant your Succulents

Here comes the fun part!  Add your succulent to the platner.  You can design it any way you want to plant whereever you would like.  Make sure the rooters are into the soil.  Once you have placed the succulents, fill the pot up to cover the roots but the leaves sit on top of the soil to prevent rotting. 

5. Add any moss or decorations. 

To finish off your succulent feel free to add any moss or decorations.  Decorations can be rocks, gravel, or small figures.  

6. Let it grow!

You don't need to water your succulent for a day or two.  Then water periodically to keep your succulent growing.
