How to make your own Cactus & Succulent Terrarium

I love cacti and succulents and as my ever growing collection took up so much space I decided to do another Cactus & Succulent Terrarium. You will see it’s dead easy and done in no time! The cool thing is you can use whatever cacti and succulents you want and even vary with your glass terrariums. Let your creativity free and let’s make our own Cactus & Succulent Terrarium.

Cactus & Succulent Terrarium

All you need is some turf (I opted for a special one tailored to cactus and succulents), a glass bowl or container, some stones and of course your plants! 

So let’s start with making your own Cactus & Succulent Terrarium. Add some turf o your glass bowl. I filled about one-third of my bowl with it. Then take your cacti and succulents and place them (still in their containers) in your bowl. This way you can move them around and rearrange them until your happy with how it looks.

Now it’s time to get digging. Make your first hole (you can use your fingers or like me resort to a spoon). Then gently remove the plastic cup from your succulent and place it (the plant) in your hole. Cove any empty space with some additional turf and move on to placing your next cactus. Repeat this steps until you planted all your greens.

Before we move on to the last step, water your plants. Attention: Don’t drown them! Cacti don’t like to much water. So be considerate and just add some to help you set those succulents in the turf.

The last step is to add your stones. Now you can go all crazy and make some patterns with different coloured stones or keep it simple and classy like me with the white ones. And… you’re done!

Yay – just look at my terrarium. I’m totally in love with it! Adding that pink cactus was such a good idea. It just brings it all together in my opinion and doesn’t it just look right adorable?! I find that cactus and succulent terrariums are not just a really nice addition to anyone’s flat/house etc. but they make some great gifts too! They don’t take up a lot of time and you can give someone something you did yourself. Already know who you’ll be gifting this next time you need something or for Christmas (as it’s not long now)?

PS: I did a small Cactus Terrarium a few month ago if you wanna check that out too.
