DIY Recycled Cactus Terrarium

Everybody’s crazy about terrariums! We love these pretty glass pieces that allow us enjoy plants that don’t require much care. Let’s make a simple cactus terrarium, the supplies are a glass jar, a cactus, stones or crocks for drainage, charcoal to keep mould & bacteria at bay, soil and sand. Put stones or crocks onto the bottom, add a generous sprinkling of charcoal, then a mixture of sand and soil. Carefully plant your cactus inside then add a layer of sand to top it off. You can add some decoration at this stage. Don’t forget to water the cactus according to its type and season; it’s better to make some holes in the lid as your little cactus needs fresh air.
