Homemade Terrarium In A Jar

  • Wide, clear, lidded container (we got ours at Walmart)
  • Pebbles
  • Activated carbon (sold at pet stores)
  • Soil
  • Stones, moss, and small plants

  1. Cover the bottom of the container with an inch of pebbles.
  2. Add a layer of activated carbon to curb any earthy odors, top it with 3 inches of soil, and create your garden from the stones, moss, and small plants you've unearthed — no rare species, please!
  3. Mist the terrarium until the soil is moist but not wet. Add decorations, if you like, then close the lid. If the container becomes cloudy, remove the top to let excess moisture evaporate. Mist the terrarium lightly if the soil starts to dry out.
