A simple and beautiful first terrarium

If you have never made a terrarium in a container you might want to check this one out. This is first terrarium made by Maya and my thanks to her for sending in the pics. She also has some great advice for us which includes starting with some hardy plants like succulents and opening the container to air it out if it is developing some mold or seems too wet!


Here is what Trever has to say about how he made this Terrarium.

Here is what Maya has to say about making this terrarium:

The plants I used were all Cacti which I picked from my mom's garden-

I chose to use them because I know they're very resistent. The container is actually a very old Tahini container (about 30 years ago...) which I found in the storage room... The main challenge at first was the plant the small parts ... But I did a mistake of adding tap water which I think might have been the cause to the mold- I did try to open it up for a while and I believe it helped a bit to slow it down - I might even do it again! I hope to send you pics soon of new terrariums I'm planning 2 do- I found amazing Lab containers which I'm waiting to use... If there's any thing else I missed let me know keep up with your wonderfull website :)
