Succulents have been in the limelight lately, and for good reason. They are such a varied species you can find more colors and shapes than you can imagine. Pair that with the ease of caring for them (water lightly once a month and keep in indirect sunlight), these plants are perfect for a bit of hands-off greenery.
A terrarium is a fun way to showcase succulents, and it’s easy to make your own.
- River rocks
- Activated charcoal (found in aquarium sections at pet stores)
- Create a base layer of rock in your container. Completely cover with charcoal.
- Add soil.
- If your succulent is large, make a small hole in the dirt. Place the succulent and add more dirt. If your succulent is smaller, you can place it on top of the dirt and fill in more soil to secure.
- Top with moss. This will help hold in moisture.
That’s it! Care for your plant is easy. Keep in indirect sunlight and water based on what your specific plant needs—most are a light watering once a month. The best part is you can plant succulents in this manner in any container. Place around your home or office and enjoy!
