How to Make a Moss Terrarium Part 2
The Suggested Materials Needed
I suggest a few things for this terrarium project. First off you should use a container that has a large mouth opening. On the right you can see the fish bowl that I am going to use to make this terrarium. This is so you can easily get your hand in and out and so you can easily get the moss in. I show you a few different containers. The small mouth containers are not suitable for this kind of project.
After that you need a cup full of pebbles, a couple of cups of potting soil, your moss, and a spray bottle. The spray bottle is so you can mist the moss afterwards. Moss likes to be misted and you should do this once or twice a day.
What to do:
Caring for the terrarium:
If you have a container with a cover or a lid then you can cover it but monitor it closely for moisture. You may need to regularly or daily remove the cover and spray mist the moss. My recommendation is that you leave it uncovered for a couple of weeks so you can mist and water it and monitor it before closing it up.

Living Moss is the perfect groundcover for your bonsai tree. Hirt's moss is greenhouse grown and only requires a misting once or twice a day to flourish. It can even be grown by itself on a shady window sill. Just keep it evenly moist, not wet or dry and mist it daily!
