How to create a Terrarium easily

As a first step, the first one done is the creation of media.
Make a layer of media with formation of a layer of gravel or zeolite, the size of gravel at the bottom, then flatten spagnum moss on the gravel, then flatten zeolite on moss. Give also a layer of rice husk on top of zeolite. Lastly, sprinkle with ground zeolite or compost on top of charcoal husk.
Make a contoured surface in accordance with your creativity. Media volume is 1 / 3 or 1 / 5 of the container volume. For the high container, use the funnel as a tool.

Then a second process, which is also quite important, is to enter the plant. Before you start putting, you should first design the layout of plants in the terrarium. Instead, do not mix plants of different nature in a terrarium.

After that, clean the plant roots. If the roots are too long, cut a maximum of 1 / 3 the volume of the root. In restructuring the terrarium, start from a plant whose roots are the longest. Close the back roots with zeolite. After laying out the plants, wet the plants with a spray of water to maintain freshness.

It was time to decorate your terrarium. Accessories that can be used are sand bali, coral, pine fruits, shells and so forth. After decorating, clean glass container terrarium with gauze. For hard to reach areas, use chopsticks wrapped in gauze-tipped.
