What Houzz contributors are saying:

To start, gently add about 1 to 2 inches of rock at the base of your container. This will allow for drainage.Add a light layer of the charcoal on top of the rock layer. The charcoal acts as a filter, preventing the moisture from becoming too stagnant.To keep the soil from trickling down into the rocks, you'll need to add a barrier. You can use a coffee filter or sphagnum moss for this. Which one you use depends on your taste and the size of the jar (the moss will take up more space). If using a coffee filter, you may need to cut it to fit your container properly. If you use moss, use just enough to cover the charcoal below.Once you have the barrier in place, add 3 to 4 inches of premoistened soil. You can fashion a funnel out of newspaper to direct the soil where you want it to go and keep it from dirtying the glass.

Add to ideabook by Kim Gamel by Kim Gamel Now the fun part: adding the plants. Your selection will depend on whether the terrarium will be open or closed. Closed terrariums require humidity-loving plants. And because closed terrariums cannot be placed in direct or bright light (the plants will cook), you'd need to choose shade-loving plants. Good choices include: • Strawberry begonia • Ferns • Live moss • Baby’s tears • Arrowhead plant
