Terrarium Time (#2) Mini-Tutorial

Hi All!!
With the weather being so rainy and wet, I have spent much of my time indoors with my "little" gardens.  I have been able, through trial and error, to perfect the terrarium blend of ingredients for succulents and some of the other leaf-bearing plants. But as they always say, you never stop learning:)            

The layers begin ( from the bottom up):              
1. Charcoal ( just enough to cover the bottom) -can be found in aquarium aisle-

2. A piece of plastic mesh cut  to fit comfortably in the container (or any netted

3. Small rocks to lay evenly atop the plastic mesh (this will also keep it in place)

4. Potting soil and root of plant together so the plant sits well and secure in the

5. A top layer of crushed shells or small rocks (or both) create a nice contrast between
     the soil and the leaves of your beautiful plant!!

Here are a few others:
My favorite little pot- I couldn't resist!!

                                                                           Enjoy !
  Till next time,
