Create your own terrarium

Step 1: Choose your terrarium  

We sell lots of different shapes and sizes in our stores, you’re bound to find one that will suit your space


Step 2: Cover the bottom of your terrarium with a 1.5 inch layer of small stones or pebbles 

The bottom layer of small pebbles will act as drainage for your terrarium


Step 3: Add a very thin layer of activated charcoal, then a layer of potting soil 

We recommend adding a thin layer of activated charcoal as this will keep the water fresh and fight off any bacterial growth in your terrarium. Next you need to add enough potting soil so that it’s deep enough for your plants to root into it. We recommend a layer that’s about 2.5 to 3 inches

Step 4: Now it’s the fun part! 

  • Start by planting your largest plant first to build some height within your display. Remove the plant from its container and prune the roots 

  • Then, using our terrarium tools make a hole in the soil large enough to fit the plants’ roots 

  • Next, nestle the plant into the soil and firm up the base of the plant so it feels secure. It’s easiest to work your way from the back to the front of your terrarium 

  • Follow these steps to add your remaining plants

  • Add a finishing touch with some stones or pebbles, or a favourite figure like a little mushroom or gnome. Or for a kid’s bedroom maybe a dinosaur or fairy figure

Step 6: Enjoy your indoor garden!
