1. Gather Your Materials
Before you begin, make sure you have all the essentials:
- A 6 inch round hanging terrarium by Wildroots
- Small plants (succulents, air plants, or moss)
- Pebbles or gravel
- Activated charcoal
- Potting soil
- Decorative elements (optional)
- Spray bottle for watering
2. Layering the Base
Start with a layer of pebbles or gravel at the bottom of your terrarium. This ensures proper drainage and prevents root rot.
3. Potting Soil
The next layer is potting soil. Create a small well in the soil for your plants to sit in. Ensure it’s deep enough to accommodate the roots.
Carefully place your chosen plants into the well you’ve created. Be gentle with the roots to avoid damage.
This step is where your creativity shines. Add decorative elements like small figurines, colorful stones, or miniature fairy lights to enhance the terrarium’s visual appeal.
Use a spray bottle to moisten the soil. Be cautious not to overwater; terrariums thrive in a slightly humid environment.
8. Hanging Your Terrarium
Find the perfect spot to hang your terrarium. Ensure it receives indirect sunlight, as direct sunlight can cause the plants to overheat.
How often should I water my hanging terrarium?
Watering frequency depends on the plants and the humidity level in your home. Generally, a light misting every 2-4 weeks should suffice. Monitor the soil’s moisture level to avoid overwatering.
Can I hang my terrarium in direct sunlight?
It’s best to avoid direct sunlight, as it can cause the terrarium to overheat and damage the plants. Opt for a spot with indirect sunlight or bright, filtered light.
What plants are suitable for a hanging terrarium?
Succulents, air plants, and small ferns are ideal choices. These plants thrive in the enclosed environment of a terrarium and require minimal care.
How do I clean the glass of my terrarium?
To maintain the clarity of the glass, use a soft cloth or paper towel to gently wipe away any dust or fingerprints. Avoid using harsh chemicals.
Can I change the plants in my terrarium?
Yes, you can change the plants to refresh the terrarium’s look. Simply remove the existing plants, replace the soil, and add new ones.
Are hanging terrariums suitable for kids and pets?
While hanging terrariums are captivating, it’s important to keep them out of reach of curious pets and small children. Some plants may be toxic if ingested.
