How to Make a Succulent Terrarium

Terrariums are all the rage these days, especially succulent terrariums. Learn how to make your own with this step-by-step photo tutorial. Plus learn some dos and don'ts for using succulents in terrariums! 

Here's What You Need:

– Glass terrarium – Succulent soil – Succulents – String of Pearls

I started by putting a little bit of soil in first. The soil I use is equal parts Turface, small pine bark shreds, and crushed rock. This soil drains really well so I thought it would also work well in the terrarium to prevent too much water from building up. 

Once the soil was in I added String of Pearls and had them hang out of the main opening. 

Next I added my two main succulent cuttings (I used Graptoveria ‘Fred Ives' and Sedum Adolphii), being sure to put the stems under the soil. 

I used a little bit of bakers twine to hang the terrarium up on my wall. I really like how it turned out!
