Making your own mossarium

As promised here are our steps for making your very own mossarium or terrarium. Our favourites at the moment are the hanging glass spheres which look so pretty styled on a tree or dangling in front of a window. You could even make Christmas themed ones to dress up your Xmas tree if you are so inclined.  

Getting started: 

1. Place a layer of stones on the bottom of your chosen vase or glass jar. The depth of the layer will depend upon the size of your jar.

2. Add a layer of soil over the stones (we bought our soil from Art Garden ).

3. Plant your selection of succulents and moss. It can be finicky to put the soil around the plants evenly so we suggest to use a small spoon to make it easier. 

4. Choose your plants wisely. Try not to mix succulents and moss as they both have different watering needs. 

5. We like to scatter a thin layer of stones/pebbles over the soil once the plants are in… this is personal so do as you feel here. 

6. Remember succulents only need watering every two to three weeks. Moss just needs a spritz of water every second day or so. 

7. Now that you have completed your little mini ecosystem do try to keep it out of direct sunlight. Good Luck!
