Pike Nurseries: Creating your own terrarium

Pike Nurseries: Creating your own terrarium

ATLANTA -

Terrariums are mini gardens that create their own little ecosystem and are typical planted in some type of clear glass container. They are very popular so we are going to make one today.

Choose a glass container

Place a layer of charcoal in the vessel
 - The charcoal will help absorb an extra moisture
 - Charcoal will also help eliminate any odors

Add a 1-inch layer of decorate rock or gravel
 - Part of the beauty of terrariums is that you can see all the different layers
 - Play with the depth of the layers to create more interest

Add a 2-3 inch layer of potting soil

Choose the plants for your terrarium
 - We have a great selection of 2-inch plants that are perfect for terrariums
 - Vary the plants to get different textures and foliage color

Add sand, decorative rock, moss or fairies
 - Have fun mixing these decorative elements
 - You can create pathways or make different designs

Water your terrarium
 - Water your terrarium so the soil is moist to the touch – you don't want to see standing water
 - You'll probably need to water your terrarium every 10-14 days
 - Place your terrarium in an area that receives bright light but not direct sun

Free Class

 - Saturday, July 27 at 10am at all Pike Nurseries stores
